New castle is one of the sweetest dry land towns in Indiana, and is picturesquely located on the east bank of Blue river, a navigable mill stream,----- New Castle knocks the socks off all of the other one horse towns in the county, and has spread herself so of late, as to extend eastwardly, clear to the other side of the Great Eastern R. R., which is about six feet wide and three hundred miles long. New Castle has been the making of this road. East New Castle, sometimes called 'Christian Ridge', contains two or three lawyers and many fine people, one depot, a warehouse, cooper shop, and other public buildings. Southwardly, New Castle has spread herself clear to the tollgate, and includes what is known as Texas, the brickyard, fair ground, and etc.
