Greetings from the New Castle Historical Society!

We have had an amazing start to 2016 here at the New Castle Historical Society and the Horace Greeley House! Since our last update, we have interacted with visitors and supporters through various programs, including several Victorian Teas, new education programs, evening and daytime lectures, our 50th Annual Meeting, the Annual “Castles of New Castle” House Tour, and several community-wide special events.

Over the past few months, we have also completed several important projects, including re-painting and repairing several upstairs rooms in the historic Horace Greeley House and assessing and re-cataloging our entire clothing and textiles collection.

We are looking forward to the second half of 2016, and the many activities and projects that we have planned. Please keep your eyes open for our expanding family-friendly activities and opportunities, as well as information regarding the opening of our new exhibit in September, Abraham Lincoln and Horace Greeley: Uncertain Allies. Also, be sure to save the date for our 50th Anniversary Gala, “Party like It’s 1966,” scheduled for October 15. This is sure to be a celebration you do not want to miss!

None of these accomplishments or future plans would be possible without your continued support. On behalf of our Board of Trustees and staff, I wish you, your family and friends a safe and happy summer season!
