Today it is a town with an elite historic district containing several house museums and an historic hexagonal library designed in 1892 by the famous Philadelphia architect, Frank Furness. Fans of Old New Castle received good news this week. There had been worries that the traditional third Saturday in May Day in Old New Castle event, with homes and museums usually open to the public, had been cancelled.

Here is a picture of Jason, of Delmarva Power installing the meter. He said that meter readers will no longer try and fight my lilac bush and ivy to read the meter. Also, they won't have to fight their way through the prickly bushes which surround some other meters. (1 comments)
