Newburgh's history can be traced back to 1304 when a licence was granted to start a weekly market. The civil parish originates as the hamlet of the ancient parish of Lathom.
The village has a conservation area at its centre and includes many historic Carolean and Georgian buildings, including the schoolhouse of 1714. In 2006, it won the Champion Village Class for the second time in the Lancashire Best Kept Village Competition. Accommodation is available at the Red Lion Hotel and there is a post office, village shop and tearoom. There is an Anglican church, Christ Church, founded in 1857, a primary school and two scout groups.
Newburgh Village Fete takes place every year in June.
Newburgh is twinned with the town of Newburgh, Indiana, in the United States.
