Cooch’s Bridge is the Scene of the Battle of Cooch's Bridge, Sept. 3, 1777. The only Revolutionary War battle fought in Delaware. Tradition holds that the new 13-star flag, the Stars and Stripes, was first unfurled during action here.

Or take a day and explore Nemours Mansion - the 300-acre country estate of the late industrialist and philanthropist Alfred I. duPont. Located on the grounds of the renowned Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, it derives its name from the town in France represented by Mr. duPont's great-great-grandfather, Pierre Samuel duPont de Nemours, as a member of the French Estates General in 1789. The mansion was built from 1909 to 1910 and is a fine example of a French chateau in the style of Louis XVIth. The 47,000 sq. ft. mansion looms over the surrounding formal gardens and is furnished with fine antiques, famous works of art, beautiful tapestries, and other treasures. The grounds surrounding the mansion extend for one third of a mile along the main vista from the house, and are among the finest examples of French-style gardens in the United States.
Or in the mood for something a little bit eerie? The Deer Park Tavern is a favorite of University of Delaware students, faculty and townsfolk. It was built in 1851 at the western end of the Main Street commercial district, to replace an earlier inn which had been built in 1747. Mason and Dixon stayed at that earlier inn while carrying out the survey work on the Mason Dixon boundary line, which forms most of the western border of Delaware, running due south from the Newark area to Delaware's southern border. Writer Edgar Allan Poe is reputed to have stayed at the inn, and local legend says he may have both written parts of "The Raven" while staying there and been thrown out for becoming drunk. The legend also states that he cursed the inn, causing the owners to change the symbol to that of a raven. On December 23, 1843, Edgar Allan Poe lectured at the Academy and visited the inn. As he was attempting to emerge from his carriage at the inn, he was reputed to have fallen in the mud and was so upset that he put a curse on the building.
Next time you’re gluing together that little item you just broke; don’t forget to thank Newark for bringing us Super Glue. Newark native, Harry Coover invented the cyanoacrylate adhesive called "super glue", while working at Eastman Kodak in 1942.
