School Programs Reached More Than 2,000 Students in 2018-19

Historic Newton Worked with Schools in Newton and beyond

What are the stories of brave men and women who dared to free themselves from slavery? How did Native people in Eastern Massachusetts use the natural resources available to them to meet their basic needs, and how did English colonists change the landscape? Historic Newton's educational programs helped students explore these and many other themes during the 2018-19 school year.

Our professional educators in the past school year welcomed nearly 2,000 school group participants to our two museums, the Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds. We also visited 58 classrooms to deliver programs at 31 schools in Newton and beyond. At Newton South High School, we worked with 82 juniors and seniors on a public history project.

During the summer, our educators work with many camp groups and summer programs. We host programs throughout the year, so please check our list of programs here or contact us at
