Discover the Newton Corner women who lived in the homes on Eldredge, Franklin, and Park Streets in 1900. Learn about the differences in the lives of live-in servants and the mistresses of the homes (and their daughters). Using census data, marriage records, local histories, and newspaper accounts, Newton resident Anne Larner will paint a picture of life in 1900 for young women and enlighten us with stories of how life played out for selected women who lived upstairs and downstairs.
