Make the three museums of the New Castle Historical Society, The Amstel House, The Dutch House and The Old Library Museum, your first stop when you visit Historic New Castle. The town's cobblestones almost ring with the echoes of its diverse past. We'll share with you stories of three centuries of New Castle life, including Dutch colonists, revolutionary leaders, and 19th century Americans.
