We feel fortunate to be located in historic New Castle, Delaware. Our town is a vibrant community on the Delaware River that just happens to have a wonderful collection of 18th and 19th century period architecture. The town was founded in 1651 by Dutchman Peter Stuyvesant and later became the colonial capital of Delaware.
The historic buildings are in an excellent state of preservation and enjoyed as private homes, houses of worship, or museums open to the public. The museums are owned and operated by two historical societies and the state of Delaware. A fourth is privately maintained. The town has been nominated to become the hub for Delaware’s first National Park.
It's easy walking within our small town. We have a selection of restaurants as well as two B&B’s. Shop owners offer a diverse collection of wares from antique quilts to fragrant handmade soap.
New Castle hosts a number of special events throughout the year. Every May, the oldest continuous house and garden tour in the country is held. There is a large outdoor antiques show each August and a number of other special events, that are not to be missed.
