Support the New Castle Historical Society with a donation to our 2020 Annual Appeal Campaign. 

As we look back at our 86th year at the New Castle Historical Society, it’s safe to say that this has been a year like no other. Like so many other individuals, families, businesses and community organizations, the plans we made for this year have been cancelled, delayed or modified as we adapted quickly to the challenges of 2020. One thing has not changed however – our commitment to our mission, our members and visitors, and our community.

We expect that next year will be similar to 2020, and we are working diligently to plan for 2021 and beyond. We have a new administrative structure and new staff members to help us prepare for the challenges ahead. We are looking at innovative and creative ways to bring New Castle’s history alive through our programs, communication channels, and the way we use our museums and gardens. Of course, we continue to preserve the historic buildings and landscapes that have been entrusted to us.

We are also working hard to ensure that the New Castle Historical Society remains a financially stable and sustainable organization through our efforts to maximize our earned revenue, individual fundraising and support from businesses, foundations and governments. For this, we need your help.

We ask you to help us preserve New Castle’s heritage by making a contribution to the New Castle Historical Society today. Your generous gift helps us develop and deliver valuable historical experiences for residents and visitors each year.

Please make a donation today to support the preservation of New Castle's history for the future. 

Thank you very much for your continued support of the New Castle Historical Society. We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!
