“Travel back in time”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

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 visit.

“Come to Dover”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

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. There are concerts, a foot race and other goings on. A great low cost way to spend the weekend.

“Delaware State House - excellent guide”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

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.
