Beginning in the 20th century, Latinos immigrated and settled in what is now known as Newton, Kansas. For many years, the Santa Fe Railroad has been the major source of income for the Mexican-American population in Kansas. Following the Santa Fe Railroad, many Mexican American families settled in Newton although times were tough and work was scarce. Latinos have been able to strive for better quality of life. Many Mexican-Amercian and recent immigrants have called Newton their home and important worthwhile citizens in the United States. Finally, Mexican-Americans in Newton have contributed to the development of Kansas, and they will continue to play an important role in Newton’s future.
