About the Park

Delaware’s first urban park without boundaries, First State Heritage Park explores the stories of remarkable Delawareans and innovative governance in the First State. Interpreters clothed head-to-toe in Revolutionary garb await to lead visitors in signature thematic walking tours, seasonal lantern-lit programs, craft workshops, and special events highlighting bygone eras. Oriented around the Dover Green, where Revolutionary soldiers marched, the US Constitution was ratified, Freedom Seekers escaped slavery, and crusading suffragists expanded equality, there is so much to discover in this historic half-acre! Visitors begin their experience at the John Bell House before visiting other sites in walking distance, including the Old State House, Legislative Hall, The Biggs Museum of American Art, the Delaware Public Archives, and Johnson Victrola Museum. Take a step back in time or relax in soft grass beneath the towering trees that have shaded visitors for 150 years, all at First State Heritage Park.

First Saturdays in the First State

On the First Saturday of each month, we want to welcome citizens and guests of Dover with a series of thematic programs and events. There is something new every month! Programs at all First State Heritage Park sites. Check the calendar for details. While the major park attractions are open throughout the week, a variety of special programs and events are developed at each site for the first Saturday of each month, some buildings, like Governor's House at Woodburn and Courtroom# 1 at the Kent County Courthouse, are only open to the public on this day or by appointment.

Market Fair

First Saturdays in the First State: the Life-Saving Service

Saturday, August 7, 2021

9:00 AM

The US Life-Saving Service (the early Coast Guard) were the heroes of their day, rescuing ships in distress. They were also innovators! Rowing their surf boats into dangerous seas risked the lives of everyone, so they invented an ingenius system to save shipwreck victims from shore: the breeches buoy. Visit us on the Green as we demonstrate the function of this incredibly successful life saving device with the help of our colleagues at the Indian River Life-Saving Station at Delaware Seashore State Park! You might also take a walking tour exploring the trades people who called Dover their home (10 a.m. - 3 p.m.), visit the Old State House and Johnson Victrola Museums (reservations required), and view the rare artwork at the Biggs Museum of American Art (10 a.m. - 4 p.m.).
