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.
