Newton is a big city in Massachusetts and it is only a few miles away from Boston. First it started to out to be a suburb as people from Newton traveled to Boston in less than 20 minutes for work, however, Newton started to grow and many smaller villages were patched to the city. Newton was settled in 1630 and was called The Newe Towne. Later it was incorporated and renamed Newtown to go with the new and more advanced English language. However, in the late 1700s it was named Newton for good. Newton was an agricultural town with lots of mills and water power stations. Things like chocolate, glue, paper and much more were produced here once settlers realized how rich the soil was. Since the turn of the 20th century Newton started to develop very fast and now it is home not only to thousands of people and tons of things to do.
