Historic Preservation in Newton, Iowa

The City of Newton and the Newton Historic Preservation Commission are currently partnered with Bergland + Cram to create Downtown Historic Preservation Design Guidelines for property owners within Newton’s Historic Downtown and Main Street Districts.

Kristy King and Scott Borcherding have been meeting with city officials, community members, and business owners to gather ideas and present draft versions for feedback.

In designing the guidelines, Bergland + Cram has taken into account the important pieces of Newton including the many aspects and styles of architecture within the districts, it’s Get to Know Newton brand, and the impact of Maytag Corporation on the downtown.

“Newton has many mid-century modern buildings which reflect one of its boom times, but there are interesting things from all eras” says King.  “It’s been a pleasure getting to know the community and provide something that will help them preserve their uniqueness.”
