From the Classroom


"The following is a student created blog regarding the history of the Petaluma Watershed. This blog is part of a series from students at Casa Grande participating in the Watershed Classroom with educators Paula Biancalana and Jolene Thinnes."

Newtown was created in June 1852 by  Henry Heintzelman and M.G Lewis. Newtown was a bend in the creek, where people began selling goods at that location. The success didn’t last long because people started heading upstream further and noticed a better spot to make more of themselves.
