New Castle Congregational Church
The New Castle Congregational Church is the only
ecclesiastical building in this small town and has served as
a focus of community life since it was built in 1828.
Research shows that the master builder, Thomas F. Foye, and
the finish carpenter, Andrew B. Vennard, drew inspiration
for its construction from the design books of architect
Asher Benjamin and the appearance of St. John’s Church,
located upriver in Portsmouth. Today, both the exterior and
interior of the church remain largely unaltered, well-cared
for by the congregation for close to 200 years.
