Where is Newton, Massachusetts, USA? 

Newton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA (Auburndale) (Nonantum) (Oak Hill) (Thompsonville) (Waban) (West Newton)
Newton was settled in 1630 as part of "the newe towne", which was renamed Cambridge in 1638. Roxbury minister John Eliot convinced the Native American people of Nonantum, a sub-tribe of the Massachusetts led by a sachem named Waban, to relocate to Natick in 1651, fearing that they would be exploited by colonists. Newton was incorporated as a separate town, known as Cambridge Village, in 1688, then renamed Newtown in 1691, and finally Newton in 1766. It became a city in 1873.
