Newton is a thriving city strategically located at the intersection of I-20 and Highway 15. Newton has blended a colorful past with a dynamic present to establish a promising framework for the future.
“Contrary to common belief the town of Newton, incorporated in 1860, was named for Newton Doolittle, whose father Roger Doolittle gave part of the land for the site, and not for Sir Issac Newton. It is Newton County that was named for Sir Isaac Newton, the English philosopher-mathmatician.”
