The present-day state of Delaware was inhabited by various Algonquian-speaking Native American tribes long before the European encounter. The Delaware people were hunters and gatherers that occupied the area around the Delaware Valley while the Nanticoke settled around the Chesapeake Bay. The Iroquois attacked the Delaware people in the 1670’s causing most of them to relocate to the Alleghany Mountains in the mid-18th century.
The 1st Europeans to land in this area were the Dutch and by 1631 they had founded a trading post at the Zwaanendael. The Swedish established Fort Christina in 1638 and named their colony New Sweden, but it was short lived and only lasted for seventeen years. The Dutch then annexed that Swiss area and made it part of the New Netherland. The Dutch, however, also lost control of this land when they were attacked by the British in 1644 under the leadership of Sir Robert Carl and the area was placed in the Province of Pennsylvania. This territory was in good terms with the British colonizers as they engaged in fruitful trade and thus were reluctant to participate in the American Revolution War. However, on June 15, 1776, Delawareans became defiant and through a popular vote proclaimed their independence from both the Province of Pennsylvania and the British rule.
Delaware became a state on December 7, 1787, with an estimated population of about 40,000 people and was the very 1st state in what would become the United States. It covers an area of 1,982 square miles making it the country’s 2nd smallest state in land area. With an estimated one million people calling it home, it now ranks as the 45th most populous US state. Liberty and Independence is the motto of this state which has been dubbed; the Diamond State, the First State, the Blue Hen State, and the Small Wonder.
Del. is located on the east coast of the United States and is considered one of the Mid-Atlantic States. Its immediate neighbors are the states of; Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania as well as Delaware Bay and the Delaware River on its eastern side. This state is situated on a level plain and is known to have the least mean elevation in the state. Some of the major regions include the Piedmont Plateau on the northern side which features rolling surfaces and hills. The Atlantic Coastal Plain is known to be flat with sandy beaches and swampy grounds in some areas.
The Diamond State has various national preserves, parks, and monuments that commemorate various heroes and historical occurrences here. The First State National Historical Park in New Castle identifies the role played by the state towards the creation of the modern United States of America by being the first state to ratify its constitution. The Washington-Rochambeau National Historical Trail appreciates the combined efforts of the French Army under the leadership of General Rochambeau and American forces under General Washington to kick out the British troops ultimately leading to America’s independence. The Fort DE State Park preserves Pea Patch Island and also houses a historic fortress which was used as a prison during the Civil War. The Del. Seashore State Park is made up of several beaches along the Rehoboth Bay and the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Indian River Life Saving Service Station. Some of the other popular places to see and experience here are Junction and Breakwater Trail in Rehoboth Beach, Wilmington Riverwalk, Glasgow Park and White Clay Creek State Park in Newark, Fort Miles Historic Area at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Indian River Inlet Bridge in Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, Bethany Beach Boardwalk, Funland and Gordons Pond in Rehoboth Beach, and Battery Park in New Castle.

If you’re looking for a piece of that history that stands to this day, consider paying a visit to The DuPont Mansions, which are arguably the state’s most stunning attractions. Each of the massive scale buildings in Chateau Country allows visitors to step into a world of beauty that has long been forgotten. The Winterthur Manor is particularly lavish, as it hosts 175 rooms fully furnished with generations of antiques, and acres of garden that span in all directions, full of bright flowers that grow magnificently in the spring and summer months.
If extravagance is not your style and you just want to relax on a sandy shore, The beaches here offer a fantastic mix of simple pleasure, and old world style with the variety of galleries, coffee shops, and homes that line the shore. Each of its beaches hosts a unique personality depending on what you’re interested in. The Rehoboth Beach offers a calm and pleasant day of leisure, while younger party-goers may choose Dewey Beach instead. Two other popular beaches to check out are Bethany Beach and Lewes Beach. It’s amazing how a trip to the beach, even in your own state can feel like a vacation. No matter if you want a day just sunbathing, or one to dance around the bonfire late into the night, the Del. beaches have you covered.
The city of Dover serves as the capital of the state. Nicknamed the Capital of the First State, this city was originally founded as a court town for the Kent County, where it still serves as the county seat. This town is known for its culture programs which are supported by facilities such as the Schwartz Center for Arts which acts as a stage for classic films and ballet performances.
Residents here have access to a variety of schools to their thirst for formal education. UD is the largest public university in this state and has its main campus in the city of Newark and several campuses in the towns of Lewes, Dover, Georgetown and Wilmington. DSU is another public university with its main campus in Dover. The biggest private university is Wilm U with enrollment of nearly 15,000 students.
Despite its small size and population, the Blue Hen State hosts several professional teams that play in various minor leagues. Some of them include the Del. 87ers which are affiliates with the NBA Philadelphia 76ers basketball team, the USA Rugby League's Black Foxes, and the Wilm. Blue Rocks with the MLB Kansas City Royals baseball team. College level sports also have a wide following with the most notable teams being the Fightin’ Blue Hens and the DSU Hornets. This state is known for holding various NASCAR races at the Dover International Speedway.
The state’s economy is diversified and receives contributions from sectors such as agriculture, education, food processing, banking, manufacturing, insurance, finance, and transport just to mention a few. The major private employers are; the DuPont Company, Christian Health System, Bank of America, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., AstraZeneca, Perdue Farms Inc., Mountaire Farms Inc., Pacific Global, Trinity Logistics, Troy Granite, Navient, and E Revolution Ventures.
When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Special Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. Since this state used to be part of the original 13 U.S. Colonies, it primarily follows the old English real estate surveying method of using Metes and Bounds to legally describe the property.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a lien theory state. This just means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 170 to 210 days to complete so long as it remains uncontested. During this process, the mortgage company’s attorney will also typically file a lis pendens against the property so that the public is made aware of the pending foreclosure via a procedure which is known as scire facias. The property is then sold as part of a publicly noticed sale. Once the judge rules in favor of the mortgage company, then the court will issue a final judgment of foreclosure and the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the Del. foreclosure process are mostly found in DE Code: Title 10, Part III, Chapter 49, Subchapter XI.
However, if you are a landlord here that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference Title 25 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the DE Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Delaware Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 99 hours of thier approved real estate courses, successfully pass the written real estate state exam, pass certain criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fees.
There are so many great reasons to fall in love with this state. Despite its narrow size, and smaller than the average population, the First State packs a huge punch, offering amazing food, fantastic museums, galleries, culture, beautiful parks, strong economy, modern education system, and serene beaches. It’s no wonder why so many residents enjoy calling it home.
