Experience military

    Delaware has a rich military history.  If you travel along Route One you can see towers dotting the Delaware coast.  Those structures were designed to protect against a German invasion during World War II.  Stay with us after that to see the story of another ship from an earlier time, one bearing the name Delaware, and the unique silver service given to the ship from the people of Delaware.  

    You can get more information about Fort Miles on their website.

    Planning on seeing the USS Delaware exhibit?  Find more information on the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs website.
