The New Castle Historical Society is undertaking a new initiative to document and collect materials, photos and stories relating to our shared experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. This information will be placed in our archives so future generations of New Castle residents can research and learn from this period in our collective history.

The Collecting Community Stories: Images and Impact of COVID-19 project welcomes photographs, writings such as journal entries, poetry, artwork, and reflections from residents of all ages and business owners. If you would like to be part of this historic project, please email as an attachment documents in PDF format and photos as .jpg to info@newcastlehs.org. Please include the following information in the body of your email:

  • Name (First and Last)
  • Contact Information (Address, Phone, email)
  •  Descriptions of Materials Being Included

If there are physical items you think would be relevant to the project and would like to donate, we can arrange a time to review when safe and appropriate to do so.
