New Castle is located in Henry County, Kentucky, just 35 minutes northeast of Louisville, off I-71 and is one of the oldest cities in Kentucky. New Castle was settled in the 1790’s and became the county seat when Henry County was established in 1798.

With approximately 1000 people, New Castle is one of the smallest towns in Kentucky with a preservation district and is certified in both “Kentucky Main Street" and “Preserve America” Programs. We are very proud of our efforts to preserve our historical buildings and rural heritage. As Wendell Berry, who was born here said, “Our history makes us what we are today, and our future depends on our past”.

New Castle has one of the few remaining intact 19th Century courthouse squares in Kentucky. The homes and commercial buildings allow us glimpses of the rich architectural history of our city. A tractor on Main Street is as common as a car, truck, or school bus. This is what makes us a unique rural community.

Welcome to New Castle!
