(in album). - Note Majority of photographs of West Newton with handwritten captions describing photographs - The Newell family moved from Colrain, Massachusetts to West Newton, leaving their farming roots to become successful merchants, inventors, and manufacturers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
