Additional Details:
Situated at the junction of the Christiana and Brandywine Rivers in the County Seat of New Castle. In 1638 the first Swedish Expedition to the new world landed at that point on the Christiana called "The Rocks". Here they established Fort Christiana; it was taken from them by the Dutch in 1655, who were, in return superseded by the English in 1664. Under Wm. Penn as Governor it acquired the Quaker characteristics which to this day it has never lost.
