About Delaware

Delaware is a small state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. It took its name from the first colonial governor of Virginia: Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr. Delaware is the sixth-least populous and second-smallest state in the country. The state is divided into only three counties: New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. Delaware’s capital is Dover, and its largest city is Wilmington.

While southern Delaware has been historically agriculture-dependent, the north of the state is well urbanized by being practically included in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. Delaware is known as the First State because it was the first to ratify the Constitution in 1787.
