ABOUT THE TOWN OF NEWTON GROVE
From the early nineteenth century when it carried it first name, Williams, through today Newton Grove has represented the spirit of progress and promise. With a rich tradition as the "New Town at the Grove", so called because of a prominent oak grove in the area, the Town of Newton Grove was chartered in 1879.
Nestled strategically amid the major and developing eastern North Carolina urban centers of Raleigh/Research Triangle, Fayetteville, Wilmington, and Goldsboro, Newton Grove represents an excellent base area for selling, servicing, and distributing to eastern North Carolina and the Research Triangle area, only an hour away by interstate highway.
Small size has not stopped big thinking in Newton Grove. The community has engaged in a strategic planning process setting twenty-year goals for the town affecting future education, economic development, and quality of life.
Newton Grove citizens are proud of the progress, excited about the promise of the future and committed to the preservation of the natural beauty and cultural heritage of their community. Newton Grove is certainly a "Circle of Opportunity."
