Historic Preservation

   The Town of New Carlisle has placed an emphasis on history and historic preservation. The downtown and adjoining residential area were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992 and features many beautiful late 19th and early 20th Century architectural styles and types such as Italianate, Queen Anne, Prairie, Four Square, Colonial Revival and bungalows. Many owners have beautifully preserved and/or restored homes and building in the community adding to the historic character and charm of the town.  Historic New Carlisle, Inc. a not-for-profit historical society was organized in 1989 and has worked to preserve New Carlisle's history and it's built environment. In 1998, Historic New Carlisle, Inc. purchased and began rehabilitation of the Old Republic, an 1860 home built for businessman Jeremiah Service and his family. The Italianate home was almost torn down, but now stands proudly at the eastern gateway to the Town. The Old Republic houses a local history museum and Historic New Carlisle's office and can be rented for special events.


   Historic New Carlisle, Inc. continues to promote historic preservation through walking tours, workshops and technical assistance for owners of historic properties that may need help finding contractors, suppliers or paint colors.
