The pianoforte in the Music Room

The Society’s Museum is located in the Horace Greeley House, the Greeley family’s country home from 1864-1872. The Horace Greeley House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It provides a handsomely restored example of 19th century architecture as well as having historic significance as the former home of one of the town’s most celebrated residents. The house, decorated to the period when the Greeley family lived here, is situated on a hillside in the center of town, where it has been a well-loved landmark for nearly 150 years.

The Museum houses permanent exhibits on the Horace Greeley era as well as rotating exhibits about the history of the people and places in the Town of New Castle. Exhibits are on view, unless noted, at the Horace Greeley House.
