New Castle is a city in and the county seat of Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, 50 miles northwest of Pittsburgh and near the Pennsylvania–Ohio border just 18 miles east of Youngstown, Ohio. The post office in New Castle was established in 1812.

New Castle began to flourish in the early 19th Century with the construction of the canal system, which made its way through the city. Numerous manufacturing plants became located in New Castle because of the availability of transportation facilities and ready access to raw material markets. The canal system was later supplemented and then replaced by railroads in the 1870s, when New Castle became a major hub for the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad.
