This DVD is available from https://www.LawrenceCHS.com, an all volunteer nonprofit historical society. All Gift Shop proceeds benefit our museum. We present here a few scenes from "Portrait of an American City: 200 Years of New Castle History" which traces the history of the New Castle, Pennsylvania area from pre-history to the late 1990's.

A Portrait of an American City begins with the early Native American settlements, the plotting of the land, continues through canal era, the Civil War, heavy industrialization, labor strife, immigration through the urban, renewal years to the reawakening and gradual rebirth of the neighborhoods and downtown. Loaded with familiar scenes of the City, both historical and current, the depictions help to remind us how New Castle was and shows what it has become. All who love the City will enjoy this presentation.
