About New Castle

All it takes is a stroll down the cobblestone streets of New Castle, Delaware’s downtown historic district to step back in time. The charm and beauty of this riverfront community has only grown since its founding in 1651, making it a perfect town to live and work in. The historic nature of New Castle’s buildings and homes means that picturesque individuality is around every corner. Looking for a bite? Try the shepherd's pie at Jessop's Tavern or the Andouille meatloaf at Nora Lee's French Quarter Bistro. The Bookshop in Old New Castle is rich with history and is a must-see for bibliophiles. Explore the Old Court House Museum, which preserves the location where Delaware voted to break away from Pennsylvania, on June 15, 1776. Then breathe in the beauty of Battery Park, which offers walking, hiking, and biking trails along the Delaware River.
