—Jamestown Settlement —

One of the thirteen original colonies.


Delaware was explored by Henry Hudson for the Dutch in 1609, but was named for Lord De la Warr, an early English governor of Virginia. In 1638 Peter Minuit established the first successful settlement with the New Sweden Company at Fort Christina (Wilmington). Dutch forces under Peter Stuyvesant seized control by 1655. The English drove them from New Netherland in 1664, and in 1682 Delaware was included as a part of William Penn's royal grant. In 1704, Delaware split from Pennsylvania and became a separate colony.

1609- Explored by Henry Hudson for the Dutch 1638-Permanent settlement established by the Swedes 1787-Admitted to the Union as the 1st state.
