NEW CASTLE is located in Rockingham County and is the smallest town in New Hampshire and is set entirely on islands. It is home to New Castle Common which is a 31 acre recreation area on the Atlantic Ocean. Historic sites include Fort Constitution, Fort Stark and its home to the United States Coast Guard station.
The main island which is called Great Island was settled in 1623 when Fort Point was built and later became Fort William and Mary. The town was incorporated in 1693 and named New Castle after the fort. Until 1719 it included Rye then called Sandy Beach. Fort William and Mary was the site of one of the first acts of the American Revolution.
A new route to the island was created in 1821 when three bridges connected Frame Point in Portsmouth. Previously a bridge on the southwestern point had been the only way to reach the New Castle without a boat. In 1876 the Hotel Wentworth was built atop a hill with a view of Little Harbor and the ocean. It became the area’s most fashionable resort.
The Wentworth was the largest wooden structure on the State’s seacoast. The property fell into financial problems and it was closed during the 1980’s. A coalition of preservationists, community supporters and the non-profit Friends of the Wentworth executed an extensive renovation. The hotel re-opened in 2003 and is operated by Ocean Properties as a Marriott resort.
