About the Nathaniel Allen House 
This Greek revival style home in West Newton was built by education pioneer Nathaniel Allen in 1854. Placed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1978, the property served as the earliest co-educational school in the country and was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Owned by the Newton Cultural Alliance (NCA) since 2012, the property will support small and medium sized performances and cultural events. Nearly 30 non-profits, many supporting the JL Boston’s focus of the wellness of girls, are members of the Newton Cultural Alliance.
