Newton is named after settler E.J. Newton who settled in the area in 1886. The BC Electric Railway stimulated Newton’s growth and helped to establish the corner of 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard as a Town Centre.

Newton includes the historic village of Sullivan, anchored by the Sullivan Community Hall and the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society.

Today, Newton is home to a variety of educational, recreational and cultural facilities, including the Bell Centre for Performing Arts and the Newton Cultural Centre. Newton is a culturally diverse community that plays host to one of the largest Vaisakhi Parades outside India.
