      ". . . The significance of the North Main Avenue Historic District can best be understood as an integral part of Newton's [Catawba County, NC] overall development. The North Carolina General Assembly in 1842 authorized seven commissioners to establish Newton as the county seat of Catawba County. The act, which created Catawba from the northern section of Lincoln County, required the commissioners to select a site of at least fifty acres for the new town. The home of Mathias Barringer, near the center of the county, was to serve as a temporary courthouse.[1]

      The county court soon fulfilled the objectives established by the General Assembly. In April 1843, Mathias Setzer, Jacob Deal, and Jacob McGee deeded to Jonas Bost, chairman of Catawba's "select court" of five men, fifty-one acres to be used for the town of Newton. The land lay in the heart of a productive agricultural area that produced primarily various grains and fruit. Newton was located on Three Creek Road, which originated to the South and intersected Island Ford Road near the present site of Conover.[2] Within a year the court hired David Setzer to build a temporary jail and sold lots to raise money for the construction of public buildings. . . .
