Delaware’s Old Swedes Church Is A Timeless Part Of First State History

Unlike any other landmark in our National Parks system, Delaware’s First State Historical National Park is made up of many landmarks throughout the state. You won’t find one large park set aside and preserved, but by visiting each of the designated historical sites, you can get a picture of what life was like in the earliest days of the First State. One of the sites – Old Swedes Church – is the oldest church in Delaware and it is so worth a visit.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You can support Old Swedes by volunteering to help preserve it, and by learning more about this historic site.
