Region North Central Kentucky

New Castle, KY is the county seat of Henry County, located on U.S. Highway 421 N. The third oldest city in the state, the town holds to the traditions of yesteryear with its historic homes and courthouse. Numerous small businesses (Heritage House, Make a Memory, Three Sisters Gifts, Log Cabin Treasures, and The Flower Box) cater to the unique and antique. The Caplinger House History Center and Museum offers genealogical research using the original records of Henry County. Visitors researching their roots will enjoy the restored 1863 home where the historical society has combined modern conveniences with the feel of the past. During the summer months, the Farmer’s Market operates each Saturday in front of the courthouse. A restored log cabin, Smith-Berry Vineyard and Winery just outside the city limits, a hometown restaurant named Mom’s and great shopping makes New Castle a fun stop on your tour of Kentucky.
