Museum on the Street

Installation of ‘Museum on the Street’ is now complete! Please come to Ritter Plaza, in downtown New Castle to begin your journey into New Castle’s history.

The Museum on the Street project was implemented by the ‘Downtown Group”, a citizen ad-hoc committee dedicated to beautifying the downtown area.

Funding of this project came partially from an Associated Governments of Northwest Colorado grant.
