Dear NCHS Members, Neighbors, and Friends,

Happy Holidays from the New Castle Historical Society! Thank you for your continued support throughout 2017. Each year, you play an integral role in helping us to preserve, interpret, and share the history of the Town of New Castle with local residents and families, as well as with visitors from near and far.

As we move forward into 2018, we are excited to share with you our updated Membership Program. The new program includes expanded benefits for members, such as special guided tours and parties at the Greeley House, as well as shopping discounts at several local businesses. When you have a moment, please check out the new program here: You can even join or renew your membership directly from the webpage. We hope that the updated member benefits provide an additional layer of fun, excitement, and enjoyment to your experience of community and history in New Castle.

In 2018, the NCHS will also celebrate its 20th Anniversary as the stewards of the Horace Greeley House. I have mentioned this anniversary to several volunteers and supporters, and most people cannot believe it has already been 20 years! Time sure does fly when you are having fun and making and preserving history. Please watch your mail and email for opportunities to participate in programs and events related to this significant milestone–an anniversary that represents successful and continued historic restoration and preservation led by our local community.

New Castle is a close knit community–one that I am so grateful to have joined three years ago as the Executive Director of the New Castle Historical Society. It has been my pleasure getting to know many of you over the past few years. I am continually in awe of the support and encouragement that New Castle residents provide to the historical society–thank you.

Wishing you and yours a very happy New Year!

All the best,

Cassie Ward
Executive Director
New Castle Historical Society
