A great time was had by all at the First annual New Year's Eve Black and White Ball
The event featured a full menu created Nelson Cognac of Kouzinas, live music, and a ballroom dancing exhibition by Mercedes Von Deck and Mark Sheldon. See the pictures!
We are indebted to Susan Abele, Curator of Manuscripts & Photographs at the Newton History Museum for navigating the many documents and knowing "where the bones are buried." In time, we will try to make more pertinent information available online. If you have information and/or pictures of various homes in Waban, please feel free to email them in or call.

KING'S HANDBOOK OF NEWTON, authored by M.F. Sweetser, was published in 1889 and gives a good idea of what the rapidly growing city was like in the 1880's.
WIS has established a scholarship at Newton North and Newton South High Schools. It will be awarded each spring to a graduating senior who resides in Waban and who participates in community service programs. This scholarship will be added to the list of Local Newton Scholarships, announced each year at both high schools. All student applications and information submitted are held in strict confidence and remain within the school. Students who are selected will be notified prior to graduation when the local scholarships are announced.
