Due to the infamous gun fight which killed 8 men at Hide Park in 1871, Newton took on the unfortunate sobriquet of "Bloody and Lawless - The Wickedest City in the West." As time passed, it shed its notorious reputation and settled down into a tamer avatar
. As of now, its cultural heritage is given much importance as can be seen by attractions like the gorgeous Warkentin House (Victorian house museum), the Blue Sky Sculpture, the Mennonite Settler statue and the Kauffman Museum. All of these give valuable insights into the city's eventful past that involved settlers, natives and Civil Wars. County fairs, nature trails, Halloween Walks, car shows, parades and balls awaits the lucky visitor to Newton.
