Schedule Service Dover, DE
Serving Dover DE and Surrounding Communities is Carl King’s Privilege!
Strategically situated in Central Delaware, Dover serves the dual role of state capital and county seat of Kent County. According to 2010 U.S. Census data, the city’s latest official population count stands at 36,047, making it the second-largest city in the state. The city, which comprises an approximate total land mass of 26,000 square acres, is one of the few in the Northeastern U.S. that continues to experience economic, population, and geographic growth. Having started with an official land area of just 125 acres in 1717, by 1960, the city had grown by close to 1,000 acres.
Founded in 1683 by William Penn, who named the new town after the town of the same name in Kent, England, Dover has come a long way since its early days. The city, which today is governed according to the mayor-council governmental model, is now a thriving residential, commercial, and industrial center with a stable infrastructure, which includes four school districts, five colleges, and two libraries. Known for its stately architecture, lovely flower gardens, and rich history, Dover is also beginning to emerge as the area’s cultural, arts, and entertainment mecca, as well as a major East Coast shopping hub, where locals and tourists can shop tax-free to their hearts’ content!
The city of Dover offers visitors a variety of attractions to help fill their calendars with exciting and illuminating cultural, recreational, and historical activities and excursions. The downtown area hosts six museums, a visitor’s center with galleries, the Delaware Public Archives, and a fascinating selection of other historical sites. These are all part of the city’s First State Heritage Park, which also offers such historic attractions as the Biggs Museum of American Art, Legislative Hall, Johnson Victrola Museum, The Old State House, and the governor’s residence, known as Woodburn. These activities and events can help make your stay in the Delaware capital fresh and exciting. Even local residents will find much to enjoy here, as most of these events are designed to appeal to tourists and locals alike.
