So wonderful that a local lady prevailed on demolition prevention. restored to original court purposes. fine tour by an interested guide. don't miss.
The Old State House (and honestly all of "The Green") are worth walking around. I live in Dover so honestly I drive in this area everyday, but I can say that I never get tired of seeing all the old buildings. The State house is one of the oldest buildings on the Green and for the History buff, worth a... More

The first weekend in May is Dover Days, when the town and it's residents celebrate their colonial heritage. Centered around the Green where the old state house is located, residents give tours of the old houses, children dance the maypole, sell crafts and have a pie and ice cream social.

The guide at the old Delaware State House was excellent. My wife and I had him all to ourselves and were delighted to hear his story. This is a must see for anyone interested in Delaware history.

It was better than expected and even though we've lived here for 7 years we learned several new things. I particularly liked leaning about the relationship with Pennsylvania. The slavery... More
Very neat and free, donations encouraged. Very neat part of heratige park, so much history. Men gathered out front to fight in the Revolutionary War and site that Declaration of Independece was read.
The docent was very enthusiastic and provided a wealth of information. The building has been beautifully restored and well-taken care of. Definitely worth the visit, and be sure to take the Tour on the Green starting in the John Bell House!
