First State National Monument


Famous as the First State to ratify the US Constitution, Delaware’s history spans a sweep of American history. Its sites reflect early colonization and European settlements, religious freedom, the Declaration of Independence, the Underground Railroad, African American education, and conservation, open space and quality of life issues in an increasingly urbanized world.
