Additional Details:
Wilmington is the County Seat of New Castle County, Delaware. In 1638, the first Swedish Expedition to the new world landed at a point on the Christiana River called the "Rocks" where they established a colony and built Fort Christiana. In 1655 the Dutch took Fort Christiana and later on in 1664 the English took control of the colony and under the rule of William Penn, it acquired the Quaker character which it has never lost. The town of Wilmington was laid out in 1731 and grew rapidly; it is now the largest city in Delaware.
