Historic Newton has many resources to help you research the history of the City of Newton and its residents, buildings, and organizations. 

Please note: the Archives at Historic Newton are closed indefinitely due to ongoing renovation work. We invite you to read about the project progress on our blog, “Action in the Archives.”

The Archives at Historic Newton, housed at the Jackson Homestead and Museum, contain documents related to Newton's social, cultural, and family history. 

Newton business records are held separately by the City of Newton.
