Newcastle roots from its historic main street, originally known as the Ozark Trail, which ran from Rogers, Arkansas to Roswell, New Mexico. Much of the trail was integrated into what is now US Highways 62. The city was first incorporated as South Newcastle in 1962 and later changed to Newcastle in 1965. Today, Newcastle spans a total area of 62.5 square miles and has a population just shy of 10,000. As our last city to feature in the rapidly growing "Tri-City Trifecta", Newcastle serves as the largest community in McClain County. In fact, in 2010, it was listed as one of the Top 10 fastest growing communities in Oklahoma. Located just a short 30 minutes south of Oklahoma City, Newcastle offers easy day trip options for those wishing to sample this royal slice of south-central Oklahoma. With novelty shops, divine diners and fresh local entertainment, Newcastle pops the city charts for booming urban flavor. Check out these Top 5 Reasons to take on our Newcastle Travel Challenge!
