Plan of Proctor Map


Presented here is a plan of lots for sale and abutting owners, probably drawn up by Thomas B. Proctor, a non-resident of Newton who owned buildings and land in Newton Corner around 1869.

The City of Newton owns a wealth of historic materials that speak to the community's social, cultural and governmental past. These materials reflect the civic life of and provide insight into Newton from the 19th through the early 20th century, a time when Newton was transforming from agriculture to industry and becoming a suburban Boston residential community.
