Walton’s Academy

This building is a reminder of Newtown’s former prominence as a center of learning for both men and women in King and Queen County. It originally opened in 1852 and was acquired by the Newtown Female Seminary in 1854. The building was used as a hospital during the Civil War. It has changed hands many times since then, and is now a possession of the Turpin family.
