This Is The Newest State Park In Delaware And It’s Incredible

For years, Delawareans have been falling in love with the Auburn Heights Preserve, and now the legendary estate is officially a Delaware State Park. Thanks to tireless efforts from volunteers and Delaware State Parks, as well as the enormous generosity of the Marshall Family, Auburn Heights is now even more accessible and protected than ever.
