Newton is the county seat of Jasper County in central Iowa and is the site of the Iowa Speedway, designed by former NASCAR Champion Rusty Wallace. Newton is also home to Maytag Dairy Farms, producer of the world famous Maytag blue cheese.
Visitors can take in the nature that surrounds Newton, by taking advantage of the trails that wind through Neal Smith Wild Life Refuge or the 6,000 acres of protected habitat at the Prairie Learning Center. Our location is within minutes of wild life preserves and other locations that present hunting opportunities. The Newton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is located in the Agnes Patterson Memorial Park and is a great escape for those who love photography or a simple family outing.
For history and art lovers, the Jasper County Historical Museum, Centre for Arts & Artists, Newton Community Theatre, and the Iowa Sculpture Festival are very popular amongst residents and vacationers. If you like to get more active, visit the Newton Kart Club for fast fun and competitive kart racing.
