History W

hen Captain John Smith first charted the head of the Nanticoke River in the early 1600’s, the people he encountered were the descendants of the Lenni Lenape Indians who had migrated from southeast Pennsylvania and settled on the east bank of the Chesapeake Bay . They were called “People of the Tide Water,” and would later be known as the Nanticoke Indians .

Native Americans and the European Settlers The Nanticoke Indians and their ancestors lived along the Nanticoke River for more than 6,000 years . Although the Indians traveled extensively among themselves, nothing prepared them for the events that would take place in the 17th and 19th centuries . Their culture rudely clashed with that of a very different culture from the European continent . The first contact Native Americans

seafordchamber.com | 10

had with Europeans is not certain . The Spanish, long established in the Caribbean, were notorious for their raids along the East Coast of America in search of slaves to support their activities on the islands . There is circumstantial evidence that the Spanish may have been here in the late 1500s, but no records have surfaced to support this . The first record of a European to explore the head of the Nanticoke is in the year 1608 . At that time, the now famous Captain John Smith, after settling in Jamestown, Virginia, set out with a small group and explored the Chesapeake Bay and its major tributaries . They explored the Pocomoke and the Nanticoke rivers extensively . The map resulting from this exploration served as a standard for many years . It shows the locations and names of Indian villages along the river and illustrates the larger tributaries of the Nanticoke . Meanwhile, the ar-

eas known as Seaford, Bridgeville, St . Johnstown, Greenwood, Old Furnace, Rehoboth, Adamsville and Middleford were all part of Dorchester County in the province of Maryland .

Early English Settlements By the end of the 17th century the Nanticokes were no longer the only residents of the area . The first record of any settlement in the area around Seaford is a very large tract of land granted to Jeremiah Jadwin of Virginia on January 22, 1672 . Identified as “Martin’s Hundred”, the 1,750 acre tract was bordered in part by the Nanticoke River and Herring Creek and its rent was three pounds ten shillings per year . European Thomas Hooper appeared in 1729 on the first legal documents for the land he and his family had been inhabiting for more than 20 years . Known for many years as Hooper’s Landing, Thomas filed a survey in 1799 of plotted land where


the Nanticoke River intersected Herring Creek. The early English settlements were much like those of the Indians, living along the river on dry ground next to a supply of fresh drinking water. The rivers, creeks, branches and Indian trails were the primary travel routes. The only roads noted in early records are those in support of ferry routes linking the upper and lower eastern shore. “Woodland’s Ferry” at Cannon’s Crossing is one of two ferry crossings on the Nanticoke which appear in early deeds. Maryland records support that the ferry was established prior to 1671. It was licensed by the State of Delaware in 1793. The settlement of this area focused on the plantation style of living. Agriculture, especially the cultivation of tobacco, was the primary enterprise of people for many years. In addition, there is much evidence to suggest land east of where Seaford now lies was a very busy iron bog ore area in the mid-18th century. More than 7,000 acres are noted in various land transactions for association with the iron industry in the mid-1700s. Forges are noted in Old Meadow, Middleford, Concord and along the Gum Branch. Remains of a few of these could still be found as recently as 50 years ago. Seaford’s population growth was due in part by coastal Lewes residents fleeing inland to escape the British bombardment during the War of 1812. By 1826, Seaford had a post office, numerous stores, hotels, medical practices and industries. There were animal tanning operations, shoemakers, carriage builders and numerous farming operations.

tion was known as “Ross Station”. The railroad helped fuel the commercial growth in the 1800’s. By 1987, timetables showed trains leaving Seaford all day long, with 17 stops between the town and New Castle. Coupled with river transport, the railroad gave the town considerable commercial leverage. Ross was in politics throughout his adult life, holding office from January 1851 to January 1885. His principal place of residence was an Italian Renaissance style mansion he built around 1850. The Governor Ross Plantation is now owned by the Seaford Historical Society and is open for tours. The Civil War brought division to the community of Seaford, but immediately after the war ended, the town received its charter and was incorporated on April 6, 1865, with a Councilman-Alderman form of government that exists to this day.

The 20th Century – Growth of New Industries By the 20th century, Seaford was a town of 2,000 people and had become one of the peninsula’s most important economic sites. Its shopping and banking services made it an important center for an ever-widening circle of agricultural interests. Around the turn of the century, produce canneries dominated the agriculture community, with Greenabaum

& Sons Canning Factory, one of the largest canneries on the Eastern Shore. The Seaford Phosphate Works was established in 1874 as E. M. Ross & Co. and produced more than 6,000 pounds of acid phosphate per year. With commercial prominence and rail access, Seaford had a bustling hospitality trade with numerous inns and public houses. One of the last downtown hotels was the Sussex Hotel built in 1896. It burned in 1952, ending downtown Seaford’s hospitality industry. In 1925, the poultry industry became important as new methods of housing and feeding were introduced. The nature of farming changed from truck crops to grains and corn for chicken feed as Sussex County became the largest chicken-producing area in the world. In 1939, the DuPont Company chose Seaford as the site of the first nylon plant in the country, and Seaford was known as the “Nylon Capital of the World”. The Seaford plant, now owned by Koch Industries and called Invista, has had a positive economic impact on the area for more than 70 years. These and many other businesses helped make Seaford a hub of commerce well into the 20th century.

The famous Sussex Hotel in the early 1900s was one of Seaford's finest buildings.

Governor Ross and the Civil War Era Innovation in agriculture developed through the efforts of William Henry Harrison Ross. Ross became Governor of Delaware in 1850 and had extensive holdings north of Seaford. The Ross family settled in Northwest Fork Hundred in 1730. William was the fourth generation of an industrious family that introduced many modern agricultural techniques. Governor Ross was instrumental in bringing the railroad south from Dover, and then on to the rest of the Peninsula. The train station at his planta-

Its watershed is the winter home and resting place for a wide variety of waterfowl, including black ducks,

seafordchamber.com | 14

canvasbacks, teals and tundra swans . These same wetlands provide an excellent environment for rare plants such as the seaside alder and the spreading pogonia orchid, Parker's pipewort, wild lupine, box huckleberry, reindeer moss and pitcher plant . Despite some recent trends in agriculture and development, the river retains many of the physical and biological characteristics that were once common to many of the Bay's tributaries, and documented by Capt . John Smith in 1608 . The Nanticoke River also connects the many stories of the region, including early Native American settlements and establishment of Woodland, Sea-

ford, and other river towns, with the river providing sustenance, habitat, economic opportunities, transportation and recreation . Today, the river provides numerous programs and initiatives relating to environmental stewardship and resource restoration . Recreational boat traffic on the river originates in the Seaford area and heads south . Along the trail, there are seven boat launches, fishing access sites, picnic facilities, shared-use trails for hikers and equestrians and a developing scenic byway . Year-round direct access to the river is offered at two boar launch sites – Seaford and Phillips Landing . Each has multiple ramps, parking and portable toilets . Fishing access is located at the Seaford River Walk and Phillips Landing . Picnic facilities are located at River Park, Phillips Landing and Blades Marina . Shared-use trails for hikers and equestrians are located in the Nanticoke Wildlife Area, managed by the DE Dept of Fish & Wildlife . The Area is located at the intersections of Chapel Branch and the Nanticoke River . Two loop trails and several side trails offer options for walking . The Barnes Nature Preserve on Woodland W oodland Road south of Seaford of of-fers self-guided nature trails along a tidal stream through hardwood forests .

western Sussex county and the Eastern Shore of Maryland . Residents are engaged in manufacturing, healthcare, wholesale or retail trades, services, and farming and related businesses . Except in certain construction trades, national labor unions represent a very small number of workers in Sussex County . Teachers are represented by education associations .

Approximately 112 acres are available for sale and are zoned M1 Light Industrial Commercial lots .


Agriculture

Delaware is widely known for its banking, corporate tax benefits, and chemicals and textiles, but the state’s leading industry is agriculture . And the bulk of that industry is concentrated in Sussex County, where more than half the land is devoted to farming . The major field crops are soybeans, corn, barley, wheat and rye . Vegetable production, a victim of rising labor costs, has greatly declined over the past two decades, yet still supports several local canneries . Watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, and tomatoes are an important share of the agricultural market . Apple and peach orchards were once so abundant that the peach blossom was adopted as the of official state flower . Many orchards remain, but most have been cleared for the more profitable production of grain . Animal husbandry is also important to the region . Hogs, turkeys, beef cattle and dairy cows raised in the area supply a large portion of the food market . The production of chickens dominates the agriculture of the entire Delmarva Peninsula . Delmarva is the birthplace of the broiler industry and the most concentrated chicken-producing region in the nation . Millions of birds are grown here annually to supply supermarkets all over the East Coast . It is an industry and big business in every sense of the word and has a profound impact on the economy . Flocks of laying hens supply eggs to local hatcheries . The chicks are grown in thousands of houses scattered throughout the county . AfAf ter approximately six weeks, the mature birds are sent to processing plants . The packaged chickens are trucked to stores and supermarkets, and the by-products help maintain the area’s fertilizer and feed industries . Locally, Allen Family Farms is one of the largest integrated poultry businesses in the industry . In the Seaford area alone, there are grain dealers, a fertilizer distributor, chemical suppliers, and a farm equipment dealer . Many non-farmers in the area derive added income from growing chickens under contract with the large producers . Although Seaford serves a retail area about half the size of the county and has been known as the nylon capital of the world, its economy is rooted in agriculture .

Based on a year round concept, Central’s students attend school from early August through mid June, with breaks scheduled throughout the year. Intersessions are offered during breaks which provide students with a variety of opportunities for academic support and enrichment. The Seaford School District is also home to several programs which were created to meet the unique special needs of the students in our district and throughout the county. The Sussex County Orthopedic Program, Autistic Program, Pre-School Services, Life Skills, and Intensive Learning

Center are inclusionary programs in which students are placed in a least restrictive environment of an age appropriate manner. Whenever possible, students are mainstreamed into the regular classroom setting and enjoy the school environment with children their own age. Many special events and extra programming for the students are provided including individual education planning, in-school clinic, individual/ small group instruction, assistive technology, communications training, field trips, and much more. Psychologists, speech, occupational and physical therapists are on staff in order to meet the unique needs of our students. The district has successfully implemented creative initiatives in order to present stimulating and rigorous instructional programs. Our technology initiatives have been at the forefront in our state as examples of using the advances in technology as an integral part of instruction and our students are enveloped in a technology rich environment.  The Seaford School District offers a full range of co-curricular and extracurricular programs in the arts and athletics. The district’s tradition of pride in excellence encourages both its staff and students to go beyond the classroom as evidenced by the numerous individual and group awards achieved in the areas of academics, the arts, music and athletics. These student activities are regarded as a vital part of the Seaford Educational Program and whether our Blue Jays are found in the classroom, laboratory, media center, computer lab, gymnasium, auditorium or the athletic fields, Seaford students and staff demonstrate why we encourage everyone to “Experience the Seaford Advantage”.

Seaford

M

ayor William Bennett couldn’t be more pleased or excited over the success and growth within the City of Seaford. When asked about a few of Seaford’s recent success stories, he had many. In 2012, Flow Smart, a subsidiary of Craig Technologies, was able to acquire a 60,000 square foot facility, and move from their previously shared location in the Industrial Park with Linus Tooling. This move allowed for expansion and growth opportunities. In addition, the parent company, Craig Technologies has a planned expansion as well. In October 18, 2011, a report released by HealthGrades, an independent source of hospital quality outcomes, named Nanticoke Memorial Hospital one of America’s Best 100 Hospitals for Critical Care in 2012. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital has received the Critical Care Excellence Award for 2012. HealthGrades has ranked Nanticoke among the Top 5% in the nation and #1 in Delaware for critical care. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital has also received the Pulmonary Care Excellence Award for 2012 and is ranked among the top 10% in the nation with a 5-star rating. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital also holds a Level III trauma status and accepts emergency patients presenting with injuries such as major automobile accidents, occupational machinery injuries, and falls. In 2010, the City acquired the former Seaford Golf and Country Club property. Through this acquisition, the Hooper’s Landing Golf Course was opened. This course, which is open to the public, operates seven days a week. Be sure to play this 18-hole public course, which is spread over 203 acres of land.  The Arthur H. Tull designed course was constructed in 1949, and continues to serve the community today.   In addition to the 18 holes, this 72-Par course has a driving range and putting green for your enjoyment. The Nanticoke Senior Center in Seaford recently established a new home at the former club house of the Seaford Golf and Country Club on Locust Street. This non-profit organization is open Monday thru Friday and strives to promote overall health and physical well-being by providing health-related

services, nutritional programs, and numerous activities which help members to remain physically strong. They have proudly served Seaford area seniors for nearly 40 years and membership to the center is open to anyone 50 years or older. The City is also well on track for growth in the residential sector. Many developments are currently underway, such as the Villages of Stoneybrook, Governors Grant, Hampton Circle and Belle Ayre; offering single family homes, as well as apartments and luxury town homes. Approximately seven developments are planned for the near future.

Population At the latest count by the U.S. Census Bureau, 6,927 people live within the corporate limits of Seaford.  The retail trade zone, which includes several adjacent residential developments and outlying villages, reports a population of 24,223.  The median age of residents of the Seaford census division is 37.5 years.

Location Seaford is situated along US 13 (Sussex Highway), the main north-south artery running from Wilmington to Norfolk. Located in the southwest portion of the state, its central position on the Delmarva Peninsula makes it an important trade center, convenient to both large cities and seashore resorts. Using a network of first-class highways, Seaford is only 83 miles from Baltimore, 96 miles from Washington, D.C., 111 miles from Philadelphia, and 200 miles from New York City. Seaford is also less than an hour’s drive away from six beautiful beaches. The nearest local cities of larger population are Dover, the state capital, 37 miles to the north and Salisbury, Md., 20 miles south.

Climate The Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, which surround the Delmarva Peninsula, create an insulating effect which protects lower Delaware from ex-

treme weather variations. Average annual precipitation is 45.9 inches, including a 13.2-inch average annual snowfall.

Seaford Government The elected government of Seaford consists of five council members each serving three-year terms and a mayor who serves two years.  They are assisted by a city manager who carries out their policies and supervises municipal employees. The revenues derived from the resale of electricity to homes and businesses are used in the city’s budget. The city also provides water and sewerage service, maintains a police department, enforces zoning ordinances and building, housing and plumbing codes, and offers parks and recreation to the residents. The city is one of the few in Delaware who has its own Economic Development Manager who is committed to assisting business development and economic growth. The major commercial routes through Seaford are Delaware Route 20 (Stein Highway) and US 13, which are maintained by the state.

Transportation The growth of Seaford, which spreads inland from what was once known as Hooper’s Landing, was influenced greatly by water traffic on the Nanticoke River. Great Schooners once sailed its headwaters, carrying passengers between Seaford and the Chesapeake Bay. Although the advent of railroads and highways lessened its importance, the river is still an integral and economical part of the area’s transportation system. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers maintains a dredged channel, 12 feet deep and 100 feet wide, linking Seaford with all the major East coast ports. Commercial traffic consists mainly of oil, grain and stone barges. Seaford is also home port for a large


fleet of pleasure boats, whose owners enjoy cruising along the wooded banks of the Nanticoke. With a marina across the river in Blades, regional boat launch facilities, a riverwalk and canoe launch, everyone can enjoy the river. Seaford sits astride the main railroad running from Wilmington to the southern tip of the peninsula. There is no passenger service in Seaford, but freight is delivered daily. US 13 (Sussex Highway) is a four-lane divided highway stretching the length of Delaware and across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel to Virginia. It provides Seaford easy access to any point north or south. Lateral transportation, including travel to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. is fast and uncomplicated over the excellent secondary road systems of Maryland and Delaware. Unit-

ed Parcel Service and Federal Express also provide their complete services to the area. The nearest passenger air terminal is the Salisbury-Wicomico County Airport, 25 miles south of Seaford.

Police Protection The Seaford Police Department provides around-the-clock service to the people of this community. Each Seaford officer is a graduate of the Delaware State Police Academy. The department also employs civilian employees, dispatchers, one secretary and one records clerk, who maintain the Nationally Accredited Seaford 911 Communications Center on a 24-hour basis. For more information, call the Seaford Museum/Seaford Historical Society main office at 302-628-9828.

Blades

T

he Town of Blades is in Sussex County, Delaware, United States. As of the 2010 census, the town population was 1,241, a 29.8% increase over the previous decade. Blades is connected to Seaford by the Nanticoke River Bridge, and early development of the town appears to have been focused along Market Street, which connected the two communities. Today the riverfront area of Blades near the bridge is dominated by Peninsula Oil Company, and includes storage tanks, offices, and an Uncle Willey’s convenience store and gas station. The remainder of Market Street developed as a mixture of commercial, industrial, and residential uses. The other main transportation route in Blades is High Street/Concord Road, which connects Market Street to U.S. Route 13. Historically, this street was dominated by residential uses, but that is changing. A number of small commercial establishments and a large doctor’s office have located along High Street. The Norfolk Southern railroad traverses the western edge of Blades. Numerous manufacturing uses have located along this rail line over the years. To the east of the rail line (which is within Blades’ town boundaries), there are a number of

industrial uses involving plating, storage, welding, and auto repair. Blades primary residential neighborhood is located southeast of the Market/High Street intersection. This neighborhood comprises a large portion of the land area in the town and is made up of mostly single-family detached residences. This neighborhood is interspersed with a few institutional uses, notably the Blades Fire Company, as well as a large park. The Blades Elementary School is located in this area. The school is part of the Seaford School District and is the only school located in the town. Additional residential uses can be found along both Market and High Streets and include single-family homes as well as the Hunters Court apartment complex. Institutional uses are interspersed throughout the neighborhoods. There is a cluster of institutional uses along West Fourth Street, which is the location of the town hall, a meeting hall that was previously a church property, and some vacant property owned by the town. The Nanticoke River represents the most significant natural feature in the area and is an outstanding aesthetic, environmental, and recreational resource for the town. Previously, the riv-

Fire protection Seaford, Blades, Bridgeville and Greenwood have volunteer fire departments. The tradition of volunteer fire service started in western Sussex County more than 100 years ago. Today, the men and women who serve as volunteers give countless hours in training and in service to their communities. The Seaford Fire Museum is located in the 400 block of High Street and displays fire memorabilia related to the history of the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department Inc. Seaford's first fire engine, the 1921 Seagraves Engine #1, is housed in the Fire Museum on High Street. The museum is a joint project of the city and the volunteer fire department.

er was fairly inaccessible to the town, as the shoreline was dominated by industrial uses, woodlands, and wetland areas. This situation changed with the opening of the Blades Marine Park that includes an 87 slip marina, boat ramp, and other amenities for the general public. This marina and park have prompted some redevelopment in the surrounding area. The Town hopes to encourage and continue this trend. One idea is the development of a greenway trail east of Market Street and north of East High Street, roughly following the contours of the river. The area is environmentally constrained and within the floodplain. Accordingly, the town would not allow the construction of freestanding structures. However, it is hoped that increasing the foot traffic in the area would benefit the nearby businesses. There are two other parks in Blades—the large Blades Park and the smaller Triangle Park. There are also some recreational facilities located on South Arch Street at the Blades Elementary School. In 2015 Blades will celebrate its’ 100th year Anniversary. A celebration is being planned!

Bridgeville B

ridgeville is one of the oldest and fastest growing communities in Sussex County; a friendly place with small town charm and a bright and prosperous future. The Town was founded in 1680 and known in the 1730’s as “Ye Old Bridge over the Branch near John Nutter’s Place,” later shortened to “Bridge Branch”. The present name of Bridgeville was adopted in 1810. Bridgeville is known as a very picturesque town. Despite a new bypass, Bridgeville still receives numerous visitors on their way to the Sussex County beaches, who enjoy driving down our tree-lined streets with many historical homes and landmarks. The Sudler House, only a short distance from Town Center, dates to 1750 and is on the National Historic Register. Bridgeville is home to the “Apple Scrapple Festival,” held during the second weekend of October for more than 20 years. The Festival’s name is derived from the local apples harvested nearby at T.S. Smith and Sons, Inc. and from Rapa Scrapple, a large company in Bridgeville that has been producing scrapple since 1926. This neighborhood event has grown from simple beginnings until today it rivals any festival on the Eastern Shore. Bridgeville grows from 2,000 residents to over 25,000 as visitors come to enjoy a large dose of good-natured fun and genuine Bridgeville Hospitality. In 2008 the Apple Scrapple Festival, Inc. received the Southern Delaware Tourism Recognition Award and in 2012 the Festival was listed in the American Bus Association’s “Top 100 Events in North America.” In November 2007, Bridgeville became the home to the World Championship Punkin Chunkin event, which was also featured in the American Bus Association’s “2012 Top 100 Events in North America”. Punkin Chunkin is a worldrenowned annual festival on the first weekend of November with partici-

pants from around the globe and draws an estimated 40,000 to 45,000 people to the outskirts of Bridgeville to see who can hurl a pumpkin the farthest. December in Bridgeville features the Historical Society’s premiere arts and crafts show, “Christmas in Bridgeville,” as vendors travel from all over the Delmarva Peninsula to showcase their creative wares at this popular event. According to the 2010 census, Bridgeville’s population increased 42.6% from the previous decade. Recent annexations are bringing new residential and commercial development to the area. Heritage Shores, Bridgeville’s over-55 community, boasts an 18-hole championship public golf course and clubhouse which caters many social events and teams up with the golf course to host tournaments. Bridgeville is located 30 miles from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and about 45 miles from Ocean City, Maryland. We are within an hour of three state parks: Killens Pond, Trap Pond and Cape Henlopen. Tax-free shopping with a great selection of stores is available at the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach and the Dover Mall; both are within 30 miles of Bridgeville. Antique shops in Bridgeville and throughout the area will satisfy the desires of collectors and browsers. For more information on the Town of Bridgeville, please call the Town office at 302-337-7135 or visit our website at www.bridgeville.delaware. gov

Bridgeville Public Library The previous Bridgeville Public Library building was constructed in 1866 as the First Presbyterian Church of Bridgeville. In September 1866 the ladies of the church formed the Ladies Society of the Presbyterian Church, a group later

to be called the Ladies' Mite Society. The Tuesday Night Club of Bridgeville was organized as a literary society in October of 1896. In 1917 this group purchased the vacant Presbyterian Church for $500. In 1919, Mrs. Margaret Ricards Cannon organized a circulating library in the Sunday school room of the building. The Bridgeville Public Library became an official library in 1964. The Bridgeville Public Library provides free access to a variety of materials, programs and services in a friendly and welcoming environment. Special emphasis is placed on providing current, high-demand, high-interest materials in a variety of formats. The library also promotes local history and genealogy through its programs and services. In carrying out its mission, the library enhances the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to provide the community we serve with the highest quality collection, with programs and services in a facility that is accessible, safe and comfortable for all of our customers. To fulfill that goal the Bridgeville Public Library worked closely with the Town of Bridgeville to build a new spacious library for our community. Dedication for the new library was held on August 17, 2009.


Greenwood G

reenwood is the northernmost town along the U. S. 13 corridor in western Sussex County and is situated at the inter section of Highways 13 and 16. The Town of Greenwood has an established vision which focuses on maintaining and improving the pedestrian friendly small town aesthetics with welcoming commercial development along the Route 13 corridor. Greenwood has in the past year seen slow residential growth with the construction of seven homes. We have also seen the development of the new Dollar General store on the north bound lanes of Route 13. With the distressed economy and the depressed building industry the Town of Greenwood is pleased with the construction we have seen. Hopefully the economy will turn around and Greenwood will see more controlled

growth to benefit our area. In the past year the Town of Greenwood has completed a water meter installation project for all the residences in town. This meter project will allow our residences to monitor their monthly water flow and be able to catch problems with their lines or any of their fixtures. This project will also allow the Town to monitor the flow of water from their wells. The Greenwood Public Library will be demolished beginning sometime in the fall. This will enable a new, better and larger library to be constructed on the current site. The library building size will increase from 300 square feet to 10000 square feet. This project will take approximately two years.

The temporary library will be housed and located at 12600 Sussex Highway. The Town of Greenwood’s downtown is home to the Greenwood Town Hall, Police Department, Post Office, churches, businesses, retail stores, a restaurant and soon to be a bakery. Greenwood prides itself on being a nice place to live.
