14 Then And Now Photos In Delaware That Show Just How Much It Has Changed

Are you proud of Delaware history? I certainly am. Our little state has overcome quite a bit of political turmoil and plenty of natural disasters, and still stands proudly as the first state of the nation. What I love about living in one of the oldest states is the history in nearly every town. It’s rare to find a street, neighborhood, or downtown district that doesn’t have a long and storied history. Check out some of the more popular Delaware destinations to see what they looked like way back in the past.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
