Who Inspired Our School Names? A Newton Cemetery Tour

June 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$10 – $15

Stroll through the Newton Cemetery and learn more about the namesakes of many of our city’s elementary and middle schools. Learn about their lives and see the final resting places of Dr. Henry Bigelow, Isaac Tucker Burr, and others whose legacy continues in our public schools. With the upcoming renovations, remodeling, and construction of many Newton’s Public Schools, now is the perfect time to reminisce about their founding and look forward to the future.

Walking tours are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Register at https://events.humanitix.com/schoolnames2024walkingtour. For more information and a complete list of this year’s walking tours visit www.newtonma.gov/HNwalks.
