<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Wyoming's counties, including Weston, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Newcastle.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Newcastle - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Newcastle) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Newcastle. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from NewcastleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Newcastle.
