Historic Newton's two museums, the Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds, will open free of charge on Saturday, September 22 as part of Smithsonian magazine's Museum Day. The national day honors the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution's musems in Washington, DC, which offer free admission every day.
