New Castle, Pennsylvania

Located near the Pennsylvania-Ohio border, situated along the Shenango River at the mouth of Neshannock Creek, is New Castle, Pennsylvania, a city in and the county seat of Lawrence County. New Castle, home to an estimated population of 24,000, is the principal city of the New Castle micropolitan area and a part of the Pittsburgh-New Castle Combined Statistical Area which is the 18th largest in the United States. New Castle is regarded as both the "Hot Dog Capital of the World" and the "Fireworks Capital of America". Its chili dogs are the product of Greek immigrants who arrived in New Castle in the early 20th century and established restaurants along with their homes. The notoriety for fireworks is credited to two local fireworks companies, S. Vitale Pyrotechnic Industries, Inc. (Pyrotecnico) and Zambelli Internationale.

By the early 1900s, New Castle was one of the fastest growing cities in the United States as it became the tin plate capital of the world. New Castle experienced its greatest prosperity during this time. However, in the 1930s, New Castle, along with most of America, suffered during the Great Depression. During World Wars I and II, and the Korean War, industry enjoyed a temporary reprieve. Despite recent economic challenges, New Castle has been transformed from its reliance on industry to a diverse economic base consisting of manufacturing, retail, and service related business establishments. Many buildings and old stately homes are being restored by developers and community members alike as part of the city’s revitalization efforts. Top private employers in and around New Castle include Jameson Health System, Inc., Liberty Mutual, Westminster College, and Dairy Farmers of America.
