First State Information

Famous as the First State to ratify the U.S. Constitution, Delaware's state story spans American history from the American Revolution to present day.

Its sites reflect early colonization and European settlements, religious freedom, the Declaration of Independence, the Underground Railroad, African American education, conservation, open space, and quality of life issues in an increasingly urbanized world.
