Additional Details:
Complete and modern to the finest detail, yet retentive of the architectural style so evident during the Revolutionary War, is the unique, distinctive feature enjoyed by Delaware's State House in Dover. The original building was erected in 1792 at a cost of a little more than $10,0000.00 but additions and improvements have raised the entire cost to approximately $135,000.00. The materials used, in the construction of the main building were brick and wood, so all the additions have adhered to the precedent and maintained the atmosphere of coloniality throughout.
