Newton Upper Falls

About Newton Upper Falls

Newton Upper Falls industrial roots are linked to the railroad line that runs along its periphery. The main commercial center, Pettee Square, is at the intersection of Oak Street and Ossipee Road and contains a mix of small retail and larger employers housed in converted mill buildings. There is another smaller commercial area by Eliot Street and Chestnut Street, and parts of this village are in the Newton Upper Falls Historic District. This village is adjacent to the Charles River, also taking its name from a location on the falls, and is walking distance from the Needham Street corridor.
