The cultural, historical, and topographical diversity of these fifty states is what makes America, well, America.

From vast forests in the Pacific Northwest to the geological marvel of the Grand Canyon in the Southwest; the anachronistic mix of world-class urban development with centuries of history in the Northeast, to the rich cultures and big waves of the Hawaiian islands, the United States is a true treasure trove for any traveler.

Today, Newburgh is locally known for its charming, historic downtown district that features a number of specialty stores, antique shops, and quaint dining establishments along its riverfront.

Due to its top-rated schools and family-friendly atmosphere, the town remains a popular residential community for people working in or near Evansville.

Evidence of this prehistoric society remains today at Angel Mounds, a National Historic Landmark, and Ellerbusch Site, both approximately two miles west of Newburgh.

The principal founders of Newburgh are John Sprinkle and Abner Luce.

Abner Luce founded Newburgh almost directly to the east of Sprinklesburgh in 1829.

In 1841 Luce's plat was merged with Sprinkelsburgh and the name of the town was changed to Newburgh.

Newburgh's economy benefited from the construction of the Lock and Dam 47 in the 1920s, and its replacement in 1974 with the Newburgh Lock and Dam.
