Bill & Rita bringing coals to Newcastle

The Pacific Coast Coal Company formed the company town of "old" Newcastle in the early 1870ís. When a later strike of coal was found a mile east, the town was moved to Coal Creek, becoming the "new" Newcastle. The present Newcastle sits directly on the site of Old Newcastle.

While little evidence now remains of the two colorful communities which once had as many as 600 houses between them, Newcastle has been rediscovered lately. Now, more than thirty-five years after the end of the coal-mining era, Newcastle residents celebrate their history at Newcastle Days, a 2-day event held the second weekend in September.
