德拉瓦州(Delaware

德拉瓦州又被稱作「第一州」,是第一個承認美國憲法並加入美國聯邦的州。在此之前,德拉瓦州曾分別被瑞典、荷蘭以及英國所殖民,現在在德拉瓦州法院還飄揚著過去殖民母國三國和美國的旗幟,代表著本州的過去與現在。

德拉瓦州保存著過去殖民時代的異國風采以及各時期的建築特色,走在本州的石頭路上,彷彿就走入了十七、十八世紀歐洲的風景畫中:由瑞典人首先引進的木造屋還在此矗立著,而那些維多利雅時期的屋子,還映照著當年日不落國的光輝。

德拉瓦州的主要經濟活動為農業與工業。過去,本州曾是美國生產麵粉的重鎮,不過今日則是以出產化學藥品聞名。
另外,因為本州有對於企業相對友善的公司法,全美有超過百分之五十的貿易公司在此設立,而其中更有百分之六十三列於財富美國五百強的公司在德拉瓦州落腳。

Delaware, also known as “the first state”, became the first state to ratify the United States Constitution on December 7, 1787. Before that, it was a colony of Sweden, Holland and England in turn. The flags from the previous colonists can still be seen on court buildings in Delaware.

Delaware preserves all those exotic architectures to this day. When you are walking on the stone roads in Delaware, you will feel like you are walking into an European landscape painting: the log cabins which were first introduced by the Swedes are still standing by the road; and those houses from the Victorian era still sparkle for the good old days of the empire on which the sun never sets.

Today, Delaware has become a farming and industrial state. It was once the center of the American flour industry, however today it has become the leading producer of chemicals in the United States. Also, due to its business-friendly corporate laws, more corporations are headquartered in Delaware than in any other state.
