Inscription. In the early days of New Castle, horses were at the center of all activity. The building before you was where that activity happened. C.H. Noren & Son, who rented horses and rigs for hauling, operated the livery business. Later Levi Strauss and A Schilling &t Co. rented buggies for trips to Meeker, Craig, and Steamboat Springs. The façade is typical of the false fronts used on utilitarian buildings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This photo is from 1905, and it is worth noting that the 1904 Sandborn map of the town locates the livery a block to the east.
