Historic Newcastle Cemetery Tours
Join the community for a special tour of this historic site  during Newcastle Days. Founded in 1880, this 2.2-acre picturesque cemetery near Lake Boren is the final resting place of many of the area’s coal miners and pioneer families. The gates are closed to preserve the site but open on special occasions.
