Newcastle residents can learn more about the city’s past, with a free series of September presentations hosted by the Newcastle Historical Society at the Newcastle Library.

The historical group will present three programs that will give residents insight into the city’s former coal production, the people that made up what was once the second largest town in the state and the story of the Newcastle Historic Cemetery.

All free presentations begin at 7 p.m. at the Newcastle Library, 12901 Newcastle Way.

“People do have a genuine interest in this community and some of its past,” said Russ Segner, president of the Newcastle Historical Society.

The first seminar is a Sept. 5 discussion, “The Coal Mines of Newcastle,” led by Segner.

“The coal mines were the reason Newcastle exists,” Segner said. “We’ll focus on the various mine structure locations and the railway that was built to serve the mine.”

Mayor Rich Crispo will lead the next presentation, “The Impact of Newcastle,” on Sept. 19.

This presentation is a larger overview about Newcastle’s history, including a discussion about early residents and perhaps some anecdotes describing how they lived.

Vickie Baima Olson, who has ancestors that worked in the Newcastle mines, will lead a discussion about the Newcastle Historic Cemetery Sept. 26.

“Gone but Not Forgotten” will explore the history of the cemetery and the pioneers that call it their final resting place.
