For most of us, the dream of living in mansions with crawling ivory, enchanting gardens and carefully decorated foyers is beyond us.

Delaware is known for its place in America’s history. As one of the original thirteen colonies, it goes back about as far as the country does. With roots like that, there’s bound to be national monuments all over. The New Castle Court House Museum is indeed a national monument. Built in 1732, the New Castle Court House served as Delaware's first court and the state capitol. It is home not only to a museum featuring the ability to walk around and see the restored building in all its glory, but a tour around it and the surrounding area that tells the tale of some of Delaware’s finest history.
