To safeguard our members and others who support us, all programs for the 2020 season will be cancelled. We hope to reschedule all our programs for 2021. Please know that the safety of our members, volunteers and friends is of the upmost importance.
Welcome to the New Castle Historical Society’s website. Here you will learn about the history of New Hampshire's oldest island village, New Castle--also known as Great Island. Our online catalog allows you to access our rich history through historical documents and photos. Check out our vibrant schedule of lectures and exhibits. Research the forts and lighthouses that compose our harbor defense system. Come to the museum and enjoy hands-on experiences in volunteer opportunities with artifacts and documents dating back to the 1600s. We are also the first stop on the newly created New Castle walking tour. Maps are available at the museum.
