The birthplace of Cornelius Conway Felton is located at 868-98 Main Street. The story behind the marker is one of a famous classicist and educator whose “genial disposition and his fellow-feeling with young life, which never waned, made him a favorite teacher, even with those who profited the least by his instruction”—and whose remarkable West Newbury-born siblings included brother Samuel Morse Felton, who as President of the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad helped save President Lincoln and his train from being blown up in an assassination attempt.
