The Black Hills
The Accidental Oil Company

This northeastern Wyoming community was named after its sister community in England, Newcastle upon Tyne. The discovery of coal and extension of the railroad to the nearby Cambria mine brought organization to the town. Increased ranching activity, development of mining and timber operations and extensive petroleum exploration has led to the stability of Newcastle.

While the mining and petroleum industries have provided stability, recreation opportunities keep residents and visitors busy year-round. The Black Hills National Forest provides an excellent playground at Newcastle’s doorstep. Activities include fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, snowmobiling and ATV trails.

The Anna Miller Museum is great stop and houses a large collection of old fire wagons.
