Major highways (I-135US-50US-81K-15), an airport, and the BNSF Railway make Newton a central location for easy transportation. Amtrak's Southwest Chief stops in Newton twice each day and provides passenger rail service towards Los Angeles and Chicago. The Amtrak station has an enclosed waiting area with accessible platform and wheelchair available.

Sand Creek Station Golf Course, praised as being the 24th best municipal course you can play in the Nation by Golf Week Magazine, is a links-style 18-hole public gold course with a bent grass playing surface designed by architect Jeff Brauer. Unique features include an active railway running through the course. Sand Creek borders four holes, and eleven custom ponds. 

HISTORY

Newton, the county seat, was a hub of the Santa Fe Railroad. Due to Newton promoter John C. Nicholson, the city was also at the crossroads of two major highways—81 and 50. The town founded in 1871 was named after Newton, Massachusetts, home of some of the Santa Fe stockholders.

The earliest settlers saw the movement of great herds of cattle to Abilene through the area that was to become Newton. The town became a dynamic railhead when the Santa Fe Railroad, building track from Emporia, met the Chisholm Trail. Longhorn cattle from Texas were shipped to the east coast from Newton between 1871 and 1873. With a mix of cowboys, saloons and brothels, Newton became known as “the wickedest town in the West.”
