The Old Brick HotelSince 1981, the Craig County Historical Society has

restored and maintained the Old Brick Hotel in New

Castle. Past boarders include lawyers and judges, hot

springs visitors, and maybe Jesse James. The three-story

brick building was built in three stages beginning in 1840.

Right across the street from the Craig County Courthouse,

it was the center of town through the boom times of the early 1900’s.

The Hotel now showcases local antiques, a genealogy

library and a lot of history.  The dining room can be rented for meetings and

dinners. Two restored log cabins are nearby; the Hawkins cabin is adjacent to the

hotel and the two-story Keffer log house is next door to Food Country USA.

The Old Brick Hotel is the proud focal point of the Craig County Fall Festival second Saturday

of each October.

In Sept. 2012, we moved file cabinets and books DOWN STAIRS into the new

Genealogy Library, paid for largely by member donations. Entrance is from Main

Street across from the Health Dept. or thru the interior hallway. Thanks to Opal

and Glen for all their hardwork!

The hotel and library is open every Friday afternoon April through November, but

please call for an appointment.
