Description

The Brownsville Historical Society operates historic Nemacolin Castle at 136 Front St. in Brownsville, Pa. Come visit us! Take a tour. Shop the gift shop. Step back in time to America's frontier period. Located just off U.S. Route 40 (locally called Market St.) in Brownsville, PA, Nemacolin Castle is also a registered Pennsylvania historic landmark. Tours of the castle interior and its spacious grounds are provided by enthusiastic groups of volunteers throughout the year.

Brownsville, PA has the distinct honor of listing two of its districts in the National Register of Historic Places: the downtown Brownsville Historic District and Brownsville's Northside Historic District. These areas includes 315 unique structures inside a two square mile area. Within this boundary, four sites have National Register of Historic Places registration: Nemacolin Castle, the Historic Church of St. Peters, the Dunlap Creek Bridge, and the Intercounty Bridge.

Special Event Rentals

Do you have a special event coming up such as a wedding (check out our pictures of the Gadish wedding on castle grounds), large family gathering or other photo opportunity where the historic backdrop of Nemacolin Castle might serve to enhance the celebration. For instance, a graduation photo session on the spacious castle lawns combined with a picnic and tours of the registered landmark's interior, transforming a normally a long, grueling day into a fun filled family afternoon. Or perhaps the castle's gazebo can serve as center stage for a meeting of your public service organization. Contact Nemacolin Castle's tour coordinator at 724-785-6882 to make arrangements and discuss available dates and fees, should any apply. Permission for events held on castle grounds must be secured and approved by the Historical Society in advance (at least a week, two or more weeks for complicated projects, such as concerts).
