Today is Newton Highlands History Day, but it could just have well been "Newtondale History Day."
When the neighborhood, one of Newton's 13 villages, grew to 500 residents, they all met to vote on a name: "Newtondale" lost, and "Newton Highlands" won.
To mark the occasion the Newton History Museum is presenting a collection of scans of maps and photographs from its collection and inviting the public to help plan a new permanent history exhibit for the Hyde Community Center. The free event is being held from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. at the Hyde Center, 90 Lincoln Street.
