"Natural wonders and prime places to explore"

Despite the small size of the neighborhood, there are more historic homes per capita than any other village or neighborhood in Newton. Newton Upper Falls has over a hundred homes listed on the National Historic Registry. Newton Upper Falls is also known for being the home of Hemlock Gorge and Echo Bridge.

Hemlock Gorge consists of a large preserve along the Charles River complete with a beautiful park and panoramic views. If you venture along Sullivan Avenue onto the unpaved private road portion you will eventually come across the Upper Falls Pot Hole – environmental marvel that is worth the visit. After exploring the Upper Falls area, a nice dinner can be eaten at the Echo Bridge Restaurant of at the New England Soup Factory. Both provide a relaxed atmosphere and tasty food. Tourists usually frequent the Richmond Glass Works Company for gifts and souvenirs.
