An 86 Year Tradition... Many residents of Historic New Castle are not hesitant to tell you about their love for the historical town. On any given day you will find dog owners walking their pets down the cobblestone streets or families enjoying a stroll in the park in the evenings. Since Kerry Elizabeth has joined Penn’s Place July 2010, Historic New Castle has found a special place in

A Day of Living History Unique among many colonial towns, New Castle is more than a reconstructed or preserved historical district. A fully residential community, New Castle is a living town. Once a year, on this one day only, residents open their private homes and gardens to the public. Many conduct tours of their properties in person, demonstrating, through a glimpse into personal lives, the continuing adaptation of old structures to new life. Immerse yourself in our long and varied history as you: • Stroll through carefully tended gardens • Tour exquisite private homes dating from the 18th century that reflect the history of Old New Castle


• Enjoy guided historical walking tours • Enjoy period music, dance, and change ringing on the church tower bells Free parking and shuttle from the First Baptist Church in New Castle (Routes 141 & 273) to the Green in Old New Castle during the event. Saturday, May 21, 2011
