Maps of the Wards of Newton

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. Presented here are color lithograph maps of the Wards of Newton published by Geo. H. Walker and Co. indicating the boundaries of voter precincts, significant buildings, roads, and waterways.
