Newton is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Located about 7 miles west of downtown , the city of Newton is actually made up of a patchwork of 13 villages.
This means that instead of having a single community center, it actually has a number of different commercial hubs, each with a distinctive character.
Newton’s Villages include:
- Chestnut Hill
- Newton Centre
- Newton Corner
- Newton Highlands
- Newton Lower Falls
- Newton Upper Falls
- Oak Hill
- West Newton
Each of Newton's villages features a quaint village center, featuring a number of fascinating restaurants, cafes and boutique shops just waiting to be explored.
Newton has garnered a lot of attention for the quality of its school system. The schools across the city and different age levels are some of the top-rated in the country. And this extends to post-secondary education as well. Famously, Newton is home to both Boston College and Boston College Law School.
For a quiet place to study for students of all ages, nothing really matches the style and grandeur of Boston Free Library. The expansive building houses the largest library in Massachusetts in a classic example of neo-georgian architecture that is quite common in public and government buildings in the area.
