History Comes To Life In This Delaware Town That Seems Frozen In Time
Since Delaware is the First State, it’s no surprise that some of our towns are the most historic in America. New Castle, Delaware is certainly one of them. Plan a trip to this gorgeous town that seems frozen in time to step back into Colonial America.
New Castle is one of the oldest towns in Delaware, and this English colonial town still retains all of its historic charm.
The architecture in town is unlike anywhere else in the state. On any drive through New Castle, Delaware, you'll be driving past houses and buildings that are centuries old.
The New Castle Court House Museum is one of the oldest courthouses in the United States, and was the center of a 12-mile circle that defined the border between DE and PA.
William Penn's original landing spot in the New World is here in New Castle, Delaware. Visit Battery Park to see what Penn saw when he first set foot in America.
The Town Green is a small tract of land that was dedicated to the inhabitants of New Castle by William Penn himself in 1701. The land is still managed by members of the Penn family.
One of Delaware's most famous churches, Immanuel on the Green, towers over New Castle. The church was constructed in the early 1700s. In 1980, a huge fire broke out, damaging the building. Where were you when Immanuel was burning?
