Welcome to Newcastle, Wyoming
`On the 25th day of October 1889, the application of J.L. Baird and the thirty residents and electors of the Territory of Wyoming hereinafter mentioned, has this day been presented to this Board of County Commissioners of Crook County...`

AND SO the City of Newcastle, WY was born. Now located in Weston County, since a county split from Crook County in May of 1890, Newcastle now boasts over 3500 in population. This size allows the city to have many of the amenities of a larger city and yet maintain the friendly, small-town atmosphere.

There are three new schools in the city as well as a first-class aquatic center. The high school and grade school were completed in 2002. The student population in these three schools is: high school - 278; middle school - 192 and elementary - 345, allowing for good student-teacher ratios.

An active chamber of commerce and retail association provide for ample opportunities for business. The healthy Wyoming economy provides abundant opportunities for employment. The relative low cost of living in Newcastle, as compared to other areas in Wyoming, gives the resident the best of both worlds.

Within easy driving distance of several major medical centers and with good local medical care, our small town is an excellent place to retire. Abundant opportunities for recreation abound. Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and hiking in the adjacent Black Hills are wonderful available pastimes. A regular sight might even be a bald eagle! The beautiful grasslands to the west and south, and the western hospitality and way of life are a great draw for those interested in a western lifestyle.

Newcastle is an excellent place to live and work and we welcome all new residents and visitors as well!
From the Mayor
Hi! I`m Mayor Deb Piana, extending a very warm Wyoming welcome to the great City of Newcastle, Wyoming.

Newcastle is a growing community located on the southwestern slopes of the beautiful Black Hills at the border of South Dakota and Wyoming. Newcastle boasts a population of more than 3,500 residents and provides all of the necessary conveniences of a larger city with the great small town attitude of caring.

Newcastle is within short driving distance of all the attractions of the Black Hills including underground caves, Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills National Forest. To the west the Great Plains stretch to include abundant energy through coal mines and gas/oil fields providing abundant, excellent job opportunities.

The city sits at the intersection of two highly traveled state highways. Highway 85 leads the traveler toward Canada or to the metropolis of Denver, while Highway 16 is a direct route to the scenic Black Hills or west to Yellowstone Park.

Newcastle maintains a great western heritage with seasonal rodeos, historical travel museums, and several historical buildings right on Main Street.

I invite you to explore our web site and discover for yourself the value of a small town in a progressive state with abundant job opportunities and friendly people.

Please contact my office for any additional material you may require and plan to visit Newcastle soon!
