History aficionados can even use the app to partake in one of Newcomb's most exciting events: Teddy Roosevelt Weekend!

Users can download the Experience Newcomb app today on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and receive push notifications of upcoming events, weather conditions, and more.
