Newtown began as a pre-Revolutionary tavern crossroads on the intercolonial King's Highway. The settlement prospered in the antebellum period, becoming King and Queen's largest post village and supporting several fine academies and schools. In June 1863 Newtown witnessed the last tactical action of General George Pickett's Division before its long march to Gettysburg.
