Historic change in Newton

NEWTON

The Patriots will win this weekend. Or they won't. Why not learn something useful instead? You can, now that the Newton History Museum at The Jackson Homestead has announced extended weekend hours.

The Museum is open to the public Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and now on both Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays, including major holidays.

Accredited by the American Association of Museums and a documented site on the Underground Railroad, the museum presents exhibits that interpret Newton’s past and present, and a variety of public programs for adults and children.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children and seniors. For Newton residents, the fee is $2 for adults and $1 for seniors and children.

For additional information, call 617-796-1450 or visit the museum website.
