    "Newton Upper Falls is the oldest village in Newton. It's a former mill town, and you can still experience the falls from Hemlock Gorge and Echo Bridge. The architecture is unique, with some streets still only as wide as the cow paths of the past. The people living in Upper Falls are diverse, neighborly, and proud of their village. We have our own area council, newsletter, and annual Feast of the Falls. We have an art exhibit on our own Greenway, and, in the summer, a piano outdoors for people to play."
