Historic Newton Presents: Newton's Earliest Subdivision

William Jackson was one of the first to predict how the railroads would shape the future of Newton. Anticipating Newton's growth as a railroad suburb, in 1844 he sold portions of the historic Jackson Homestead farm to create housing for people likely to use the new Boston and Albany railroad line to commute to work. This tour highlights the architectural and social history of the neighborhood around Walnut Park and Waban Park from the mid-19th through early 20th centuries.
