Can Ceiling Leaks Lead to Roof Collapse in Wilmington Homes?
SERVPRO is Available for Wilmington Residents Experiencing Flood Damage
The city of Wilmington is the largest in Delaware state and one of the oldest settlements in the US, with its beginnings tracing back to the seventeenth century. The majority of Delaware's unique history can be found in Wilmington with its pre-colonial historic sites, American Revolutionary War heritage centers, and early twentieth-century mansions owned by some of America's richest families, such as the Du Ponts. The city is also nicely located nearby to some of the East Coast's favorite beaches, golf courses, wildlife centers, and state parks. 70,166 residents live in Wilmington permanently, while the surrounding metropolitan area numbers 719,887 people.
The first settlements in the region took advantage of the surrounding nature, with the Brandywine and Christina River intersect proving a valuable trading way. Both these rivers deposit into the Delaware river further down, allowing shipping across the United States. The city, and wider Delaware, is associated with the Du Pont family, which is one of the richest in America. Originally from France, the Du Ponts developed Wilmington significantly during the 19th century with the production of gunpowder and became a leading contractor for the US military. Today, the legacy of the Du Pont family remains both in the historic downtown district and at the stunning Nemour Mansions.
Rehoboth Beach is a short drive from Wilmington city center and is one of the most-visited beaches in the state. The beachside boardwalk is lined with entertainment, nightlife, food, and drinks outlets, which complement the town's annual festivals, which typically run through the summer months.
Hagley Museum and Library is an excellent place to explore Wilmington's abundant history. Delaware was the first state in America, and this 200-acre historic site offers guests the opportunity to explore the Brandywine Creek, historic structures, and the role of the Du Pont family in growing the city.
Alapocas Run State Park covers over 400 acres of sprawling natural forestry, wildlife, waterways, and creeks. Inside the park are several hiking trails, mountain climbing options, and camping grounds. There are also a number of historic buildings within the state park.
