Annual House Tour
Sunday, May 17, 2015
12 to 5 p.m.
Historic Newton’s Annual House Tour is one of the city’s most anticipated annual events. The tour features a select group of remarkable Newton homes and non-commercial properties that showcase excellence in historical preservation, restoration, and creative modern interpretation, and adaptation in a broad spectrum of architecture and interior design styles. The House Tour also generates financial support for Historic Newton. Click here for more information about this year's House Tour.
Hayfest is a family-friendly outdoor festival held each fall in celebration of the Jackson Homestead. You can travel back in time to the nineteenth century: learn to weave wool into cloth, make your own butter, press your own cider, dip candles, and more! Learn through hands-on activities how Newton families lived in the 1800s. This is an event which is fun for the whole family. (Left, preparing to use natural sources to dye cloth, at Hayfest.)
