The City of Newton is the County Seat of Catawba County, positioned in the triangle formed by Asheville, Winston-Salem, and Charlotte.  The gently rolling terrain blends into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains offering residents and visitors an abundance of scenic attractions, a wealth of recreational options, and a temperate climate with four seasons that are as distinct as they are mild.
