Newcastle was formerly renowned for coal production, and has an unusually rich history for a city its size. It played a vital role in opening up the Seattle region for expansion. In many ways, it was the poster child for development in the Pacific Northwest in the late 1800s—rail, coal, and timber were the key themes of this time, and Newcastle was at the nexus of all of them. Newcastle 's coal mine and railroad helped transform Seattle into a major port.

In 1872, between 75-100 tons of coal were produced each day in Newcastle ; by the time the mine closed for the last time in 1963, more than13 million tons had been extracted. Its legacy remains ever-present in local place names such as Coal Creek Parkway , and China Creek Golf Course. An active, well-informed, and passionate group of citizens remain committed to sharing Newcastle's history with visitors and residents. The City celebrates Newcastle Days, a community festival, each September. The City was officially incorporated in 1994.
