    New Castle County

    by davecallahan Written Sep 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The city of New Castle is in New Castle County but it is not the county seat. That honor goes to the city of Wilmington.

    New Castle County has about 500000 people and is by far the most populace county in Delaware (there are only three counties). It is also the most hectic with many interstates and major thoroughfares and lots of traffic all the time.

    The city of New Castle is somewhat away from the main traffic routes but it still gets its share of work-time traffic jams especially during the tourism season.

    R.I.P.

    Favorite thing: Immanuel Church, New Castle, oldest Anglican parish in Delaware (1689)

    Fondest memory: from the Headstone of Jane Wife of John Read:

    Many were her Exemplary Vertues
    Her temper meak and carriage obliging
    Strict chastity prudent oeconomy
    Piety without ostentation
    And hospitality without crudgeing

    MDCCXXXII

    Historical Blue Signs

    Favorite thing: A place of historical value. I must say, Old New Castle has more of these than most towns. They are useful for self-touring.
