Newark

Overview

Introduction

The University of Delaware, a beautiful college established in 1765, is based in Newark. Though you may not associate Delaware with Abe Lincoln, the university's Goodstay Center contains more than 2,000 items relating to the career and private life of the president.

Newark is near the site of Delaware's only Revolutionary War battle. It's said that Betsy Ross' flag was flown there for the first time. Iron Hill Park preserves the Cooch's Bridge battlefield and has several hiking and nature trails. At nearby Stanton, Delaware Park offers traditional pari-mutuel Thoroughbred racing April-November. Newark is 14 mi/23 km southwest of Wilmington.
