In 1913, New Castle was a burgeoning community with heavy industry and manufacturing. Local businessmen, Atty. George Muse and pharmacist Scott Paisley initiated the effort that earned New Castle the distinction of being the 89th club chartered.  We are proud of our predecessors and their altruism through the decades.  Long ago, they set high standards for New Castle Rotarians.  We work hard to deserve the honorable legacy we have inherited.

Many of the pictures used in our page banners are vintage photos of the New Castle area, circa 1900-1950.  The above photo is of a large boiler which was manufactured in New Castle about 1910 being moved by mule train to its destination.
