Are you researching the history of the City of Newton or its residents, buildings, and organizations? Historic Newton is a good place to start. Use the buttons below to search for materials that we keep in our Archives and Museums, as well as tools you can use to help direct you. You may research your house by starting here. Newton's municipal records are held separately in the City Archives. If you still can't find what you need, please fill out a Research Request Form. The form can also help you schedule an appointment to visit the Archives.
Note: As of November 25, 2019, due to a technical issue, research requests cannot be answered. We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
