Overview

"Delaware is like a diamond," downstate poet John Lofland wrote in 1847, "diminutive, but having within it inherent specific value." The cultural and architectural richness of the Diamond State is brought to life by Buildings of Delaware. The state's prominent, mid-Atlantic location has exposed it to many influences, with a resulting diversity of architectural forms and building types, as seen above at Wheel of Fortune farmstead and outbuildings (left) in Kent County, Fort Delaware (upper right) on Pea Patch Island, and the World War II observation towers used for coastal defense at Fort Miles (lower right), Cape Henlopen State Park. In spite of Delaware's small size-or perhaps because of it-the overlay of architectural cultures and trends discussed in this book is surprisingly complex and exciting.
