Welcome from the New Castle Community Partnership!

Historic New Castle, or “Old New Castle,” as it is sometimes called, is a charming historic town whose roots date back to the 1600’s. Briefly the capital of Delaware, New Castle was actually the original Penn’s Landing, although the town had also been claimed at one point in history by the Netherlands, Great Britain and Sweden. That diversity of heritage has left its beautiful mark on the town as you can see while strolling along The Green, and down to the Delaware River.

Unlike other historic towns, New Castle is an active residential area where people live and work, with many homes having passed down through the generations.

Many of our museums and shops have brochures and printed material about Historic New Castle, but you can also request literature by emailing the link at the bottom right corner of this page.
