HISTORIC NEWTON WALKS: African-American History in West Newton
September 27, 2009
HISTORIC NEWTON WALKS: This walk around West Newton will branch away from the village center to include important sites from the area’s African-American community. Dating back to the 1600s, this vibrant population carved out a space from which they asserted their civil and religious rights. The tour will meet at Captain John Ryan Park on the corner of Washington and Cherry Streets. Free.
