Old New Castle, Delaware

Take a stroll down the cobblestone streets of old New Castle; pass the gas lamps, the 18th century buildings of mellowed brick, the carefully tended gardens, and take a trip back in time.

From Dutch fort to capital of Delaware to thriving transportation hub to modern day town, old New Castle has adapted its identity many times since its early days.

Residents of this unique town are proud that for more than 350 years, New Castle has survived and thrived without sacrificing its past to the present.
