new castle delaware: 89th Day In Old New Castle Re-Enacts Real Estate Transfer in 1682 - 05/16/13 07:41 AM
This Saturday, May 18, 2013 will bring back another trip in time, when the oldest house and garden tour in the United States returns for the 89th time in Old New Castle, on the Delaware River. A Day in Old New Castle is presented by Immanuel Episcopal Church on the Green, in the center of this historic town. One thing I always look forward to is the Town Crier announcing the arrival of William Penn, who first set foot on what is now U.S. soil in 1682 in New Castle. Penn and the Crier travel around town re-enacting the "Livery (4 comments)

In celebration of the Delaware Art Museum’s 100th anniversary, and in conjunction with 100 Works for 100 Years—a Museum-wide installation featuring one or more works from each year of the Museum’s existence—the Delaware Art Museum is thrilled to present its very first pop-up art exhibition!

new castle delaware: Buena Vista Conference Discusses Owning An Historic Home - 03/29/11 04:58 PM
I attended a seminar yesterday sponsored by Preservation Delaware on Maintaining Your Historic Register House. The speaker was James Garrison of Frens and Frens, Restoration Architects of West Chester, Pennsylvania. It was held at historic Buena Vista mansion, c. 1846 with 1929 additions, in New Castle, Delaware, because Mr. Garrison was one of the restoration architects for the mansion, and he is also the owner of an historic home in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
The main point of the presentation seemed to be that whether it is a State owned mansion like Buena Vista, or a private home, the stewards of (0 comments)
New Jersey is visible in the distance in these scenes taken in Battery Park, so named for the hill which once held a gun battery to protect the town from pirates, who plagued New Castle, so they say. Between 1926 and 1951, a ferry operated across the river just north of this point and crossing into Pennsville, New Jersey. It ran until the first of the Delaware Memorial Bridges opened in (2 comments)
new castle delaware: Spring in Old New Castle - 03/25/10 11:18 AM
Old New Castle was the colonial capital of Delaware, and after the capital was moved to Dover during the Revolutionary War, it was the seat of New Castle County. 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.

new castle delaware: Save America's Treasures Program Restores a Palladian Window, Part II - 02/15/10 01:54 PM
In a previous posting, we learned how J. S. Cornell & Son of Cherry St. in Philadelphia were restoring a Palladian window in the c. 1800 George Read II House in New Castle, Delaware. They were installing J-channel weatherstripping on the sides of the window. For residential installations, they do not use this type of weatherstripping on the bottom of windows, but a spring-type weatherstripping so there is no danger of bending it with frequent use.
Next we see Mr. Shainline attaching a piece of cotton sash cord to the window weight. (see Historic Window Guide--The Anatomy of a (1 comments)
