More About


Newcastle is located on the Southwestern edge of the beautiful Black Hills and is nestled among the pine trees with a population of 3,200 and is the County seat for Weston County population of 7,200 . Newcastle is located near Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower, Historic Deadwood and other local Black Hills attractions. An abundance of deer and antelope share the prairie along with other wildlife as well. Newcastle and the surrounding area is a special place to live, work and enjoy the great, scenic outdoors. Newcastle has it all for a smaller town in Wyoming, with three newer schools, a community college office, nine hole golf course, restaurants, a movie theater and many civic organizations to participate in.

First State Insurance became a member of Burns Insurance Agency, Inc. in August 2012. This membership provides more company opportunities, giving the customers more choice with their insurance needs. Serving the customer first is a priority in the Newcastle office. Finding the right insurance for customers, is something this office strives to do daily.
