||Recent years have brought renovations and restorations to large sections of the city, complete with fashionable townhomes, condos, single detached homes, and an ever broadening of cultural and recreational arts activities. The suburban areas of New Castle County and the surrounding Brandywine Valley offer many different types of living. Areas such as Brandywine Hundred, Greenville, Hockessin, Newark, Christiana/Bear, Middletown, and Chadds Ford, Landenberg and Kennett Square, Pennsylvania to name a few, pose opportunities for any lifestyle.|
|Delaware began its history as the European’s earliest settlement in 1638 when a Swedish warship landed at the Christina River. New Sweden soon passed into Dutch and then English control. Delaware, then known as "Lower Counties of Pennsylvania", was incorporated into William Penn’s colony in 1683.||
Delaware Museum of Natural History
||On the banks of the beautiful Brandywine River, E.I. Dupont opened his black gun powder mill. From 1802 to 1921 these and other mills produced gunpowder for many soldiers, governmental projects (the building of the railroads and Panama Canal) and hunters. Modern chemical industry sprang up from these gun powder mills and Delaware is now headquarters for many international chemical companies (Hercules, Dupont, Astra-Zeneca).|
Delaware offers tax-free shopping with potential savings of 6% or more on purchases. Shopping centers abound from upscale boutiques to outlet centers. The regional malls of Concord and Christiana have many fine stores with apparel, shoes, jewelry, cards, books, gifts, china, cookware and many others items. The Centerville and Greenville town centers offer a variety of small specialty shops, galleries and restaurants to patronize. The city of Wilmington has gone under a renaissance in the Waterfront area with the creation of the outlet center plus the opening of USA Riverfront Art Center and the Blue Rocks Minor League Baseball stadium.
