Time is running out for residents to experience Newcastle’s history up close and personal at the Renton History Museum.

The “Newcastle: Little Giant of the Eastside” exhibit debuted Sept. 9 and is set to run until Feb. 7 at the Renton History Museum. It features pictures, maps and objects, most on loan courtesy of the Newcastle Historical Society, from Newcastle’s coal-mining past.

There are features about the still-standing Baima House and the Newcastle Cemetery, as well as a wall-sized present-day map pinpointing several historical locations.

The artifacts range from mining tools to wine-making devices, because, as collections manager Sarah Samson noted, “there were a lot of Italians” in Newcastle.
