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 is a collection of photographs of Newton, Massachusetts municipal buildings (buildings used by the police, fire department, department of public works, stables, contagious ward) and schools.
