Lewes Landmark Celebrates Inclusion in First Del. National Historical Park

Posted:

LEWES, Del. - Delaware may be the First State, but it is the last state to contain a national historic park.

On December 12, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons, along with Representative John Carney, celebrated the passage of historic legislation to authorize the creation of Delaware's first national park.

Under the new law, the First State National Monument will be expanded to include park sites in all three of the state's counties, thus composing the First State National Historical Park.

The following is a list of sites to be included in the park:

  • In New Castle County, Del./Delaware County, Pa.: the Woodlawn Trustees Property
  • In New Castle County: the Old Sheriff's House, the Old New Castle Courthouse, the New Castle Green, the Old Swedes Church National Historic Landmark and the Fort Christina National Historic Landmark
  • In Kent County: the Dover Green and the John Dickinson Plantation National Historic Landmark
  • In Sussex County: the Ryves Holt House (pictured at right)
