WHO INSPIRED OUR SCHOOL NAMES? A NEWTON CEMETERY TOUR
Newton’s two high schools simply use North and South for identification, but many elementary and middle schools are named after a notable person from Newton. Stroll through the Newton Cemetery to see the final resting places and learn more about the lives of Dr. Henry Bigelow, Isaac Tucker Burr, and others whose legacy continues in our public schools.

Meet in front of the chapel just inside the main gate, 791 Walnut Street, Newton Centre. Park in the lot to the left of the chapel.

Suggested donation $10 per person. Register at historicnewton.org or come on tour day.
