Located on the banks of the Delaware River, New Castle is an authentic Colonial town, established in 1651 as Delaware's first capital city.  Its unique history is one of a kind and its modern adaptation to living provides a special opportunity to become part of a lively neighborhood filled with stories, traditions & interesting people.  Located 5 miles from the Delaware Memorial Bridge and interstates, 8 miles from the Wilmington Train Station, and only 1/2 hour from the Philadelphia Airport, you're a quick commute to points north or south.  Featuring nearly 700 homes within a 6 square block area, architecture in the historic district ranges from authentic Colonial buildings to Federal, Gothic, Victorian & modern homes.  Restaurants, stores, churches of many denominations, a post office, library, bank, several parks & museums combine to make this a thriving town. Throughout the year, New Castle hosts celebrations that beckon tourists and residents alike to enjoy all that makes the town unique, including A Day in Old New Castle - the country's oldest house and garden tour, Separation Day - celebrating Delaware's independence from Britain, beginning with a morning parade & concluding with fireworks, and New Castle Spirit of Christmas - a tour of the City's historic museums, homes & churches decorated for the season.
Stroll the brick sidewalks, explore historic museums, do some shopping or grab a bite to eat.
Come to Old New Castle!  The choices are endless; the experience is priceless.
