Dog walkers and residents who enjoy an evening stroll across the New Castle Green have probably noticed that the street lamp in the center of the Green has been dark for some time. This has been a recurring problem for several years, usually due to a bad bulb or a fault in the wiring.

Recently James Scott, the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs’ maintenance supervisor, had the fixture examined by an electrical contractor and it was decided the old lamp needed a complete overall. The interior wiring was repaired and the old ballast-style light was replaced with new LED lighting which will be more energy efficient and cost effective. To complete the makeover, the light cover was removed, cleaned and securely remounted. This is a continuation of repairs and improvements by the division to the Green and surrounding state-owned properties.
