“Chemical Capital of the World” as well as industrial and shipping hub, Wilmington has established itself as the largest city in Delaware. It was initially known as Fort Christina in 1638 and later renamed when wealthy Quakers laid out the present town in 1731. Its history is as engaging as its cobblestone streets. Founded by the Dutch, conquered by the Swedes and English, and prominent as the capital of Delaware in the early Revolutionary War era, New Castle began her story when European explorers sailed up the Delaware. In 1682, William Penn came ashore here and took possession, but the counties that were already well established became quickly dissatisfied with his rule. In 1704, he granted them a separate legislature and New Castle became the colonial capital of Delaware. Many of the private, restored homes around the green and along The Strand are especially representative of the beauty of the architecture in the area. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Baltimore. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
