The Association was started in 1923 when Dr. Howard Peck presented a this gift of 7.2 acres of land to
nine Newtown neighbors, forming "Newtown Forester's Association."  Additional lands, added from concerned
citizens including Cornelia Hawley, Charles Peck, Henry Young and Emmet & Gladys Close,
formed the 15.5-acre "Newtown Town Forest".  Of notable interest, this is believed to be the first known official Town
Forest in the United States of America.
