We have two museum locations: the Jackson Homestead at 527 Washington Street, Newton 02458, and the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds at 286 Waverley Avenue, Newton 02458.
At Historic Newton, we believe that through the lessons of history, children and adults alike can better understand the world today. Our museums and programs inspire discovery and engagement by illuminating our community’s stories within the context of American history. We operate the Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds, and oversee Newton's historic burying grounds. Our programs include lectures, walking tours, workshops, and educational programs for all ages.
