Early History

Civil engineer John Carlysle Stewart resurveyed lands which had been reserved for veterans of the Revolutionary War. He discovered that the original survey had neglected to stake out approximately 50 acres at the confluence of the Shenango River and the Neshannock Creek, at that time a part of Allegheny County. Claiming the land for himself, he laid out what was to become the town of New Castle. By 1849, the population had reached 1,000 and Lawrence County was created, named in honor of U.S. Navy Captain James Lawrence. Twenty years later New Castle was chartered as a city, at which time the population numbered about 6,000. This article is about military actions only. ...

Later migrations from Holmes County, Ohio would make this Amish community one of the largest in Pennsylvania. Approximately 2,000 Amish live and work presently in the townships north of New Castle.

Recent History

The city was the site of an important development in the history of Warner Bros. studios, given that the first Warner Bros. theater, the Cascade, opened there in 1907. (The Warners, most of whom were Polish Jewish immigrants, resided in neighboring Youngstown, Ohio, a few miles due west of New Castle.) The theater was recently restored after almost being condemned in 1996, when a wall collapsed on a sidewalk near East Washington Street, one of the city's main thoroughfares. Municipal officials have planned recent revitalization efforts around the former theater, which is now known as Cascade Center. The facility currently features an upscale restaurant, the Mill Street Grille, and plans are in progress to turn the complex into New Castle's version of Station Square in Pittsburgh. This revitalization plan, however, will focus on motion pictures rather than trains. “WB” redirects here. ...
