Newton Higlands is a surface-level rapid transit station located in Newton,MA,USA on the green line "D" Branch of the MBTA. Like the other surface-level stations on the "D" Branch, it opened on July 4, 1959.The first station at this site opened in 1852 on the Charles River Branch Railroad.[2] The 1880s Boston and Albany Railroad depot building, designed by H. H. Richardson in collaboration with landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 3, 1976, and is part of the Newton

Railroad Stations Historic District.[3]

The station's interior, occupied by an auto parts store for years, is being renovated and is partially occupied by a periodontist's office.[4] It is not used as a passenger waiting area, although the building's eaves provide some shelter for outbound passengers. The station is accessible (although not shown on the latest map) via lifts because the station has standard at-grade platforms
