Newark in New Castle County, Delaware — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
New Castle Hall
This residence hall is named for the northernmost of Delaware's three counties, New Castle County. The City of Newark lies within its boundaries.
The dormitory was constructed with state funding in 1925, in response to the expansion of the Women's College of Delaware. Three temporary wooden residence halls also were moved to the campus in 1920 — dubbed Topsy, Turvey and Boletus — to house women. These were demolished in 1957 when Squire Hall was completed.
New Castle Residence Hall is one of the oldest buildings on the south lawn of The Green.
Erected by University of Delaware.
