  1. Needham History Center Presents Film 'Return to Norumbega'

    February 12, 2023, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    The film Return to Norumbega, a nostalgic and affectionate look at Newton’s Norumbega Park in its heyday, will be shown February 12 at 2 pm at the Needham History Center, 1147 Central Ave. in Needham. The screening is free and open to the public. Opened in 1897, Norumbega Park was the brainchild of the Commonwealth Avenue Street Railway Company, built at the end of the line to encourage people to use the trolley. The Park was hugely popular – hundreds of thousands of people came out every summer for canoeing, picnics, the penny arcade, carousel, restaurants and other attractions. The film is narrated by the late Robert Pollock, whose life-long interest in Norumbega Park began as a summer job there when he was a teenager. The film was produced by Joe Hunter, a Newton resident and documentary filmmaker who has produced a number of award-winning films on local history.
