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.
