In a month that celebrates love, we don’t want to forget the citizens of our beautiful community! Where we come from is important to us and every smiling face, every small business, and every town landmark holds a special place in our hearts. Here are just a few of the things that make Newton so very special:

• Newton is nicknamed “The Garden City” for its abundance of tree-lined streets and open spaces.
• The fig newton cookie is named after the city.
• Newton isn’t technically a city but a patchwork of sorts, made up of thirteen villages. Each of these villages have small business centers and hubs of their own.
• There are four major colleges/universities in Newton which include Boston College, Lasell University, William James College, and the UMass Amherst – Mount Ida Campus.

Throughout our community, we strive to be partners, helpers, and friends. Our neighbors and citizens mean the We_Love_Our_Townworld to us and we are honored to be a part of Newton. We would LOVE to start building a bond with you, and become your hometown trusted insurance provider. Call James A.
