New Castle's History and Heritage 

As we look back at global and national events of the past few years, we are struck by how incredibly important understanding history is for making sense of modern events. Whether people have a good understanding of history or not, their perception of history clearly influences their reactions to contemporary events and interactions with each other.

Another thing is very clear – effective history education is vital for people living in modern American society. It is imperative to understand the history of the American republic in order to understand the diverse peoples that call themselves Americans, and to chart a path forward while acknowledging the mistakes and successes of the past.

We know you value quality history education as much as we do. As a supporter of the New Castle Historical Society, you have already made a difference in the public’s understanding of New Castle and Delaware history. Your support has brought school children to New Castle on field trips, provided free lectures and webinars to the public, and opened up important historic sites for tours. You have preserved important historical resources including buildings, artifacts, documents, and photographs, and ensured they will be available for future generations.

We ask you to continue preserving New Castle’s heritage, and educating the public about our shared history by making a contribution to the New Castle Historical Society today. Your generous gift makes valuable historical experiences available for residents and visitors each year.

In addition to a contribution made online, or by cash or check, the Society also accepts donations of appreciated securities which may provide tax and other benefits to the donor. Please contact our office for more information about this option. 

Thank you very much for supporting history preservation and education through the New Castle Historical Society. We hope to see you in New Castle soon!
