NewtonvilleThe Austin Street development is in the news and the future of Newtonville is on the table.  What better time to delve into Newtonville of the past.

Historic Newton and the Newton Free Library will present a free talk called “Voices of Newtonville: a Village History” tomorrow night, Feb 27 at 7 PM at the Newton Free Library.

Come explore the history of Newtonville from its rural beginnings, through its suburban development as a railroad stop, to the changes brought by the construction of the Mass Pike.

Harvard graduate student and Historic Newton educator Tracy Lindboe will lead us through the development of Newtonville using historic images and narratives from past Newtonville residents.
