Overview


Marcus Hook is the northernmost city on the Delmarva Peninsula. Incorporated in 1892, Marcus Hook was originally named for a Native American chief and was once the haunt of English pirate Edward Teach (Blackbeard). It is now best known as the home of Sun
Oil Refinery. Thanks to its location along the Delaware River, the town prospered as residents and businesses flocked to the area. Other large businesses located here include the former American Viscose and British Petroleum. Through vintage photographs, Marcus Hook commemorates the longstanding heritage of this small community and the growth of the Delaware River waterfront.

Gave the book to my father as a christmas gift. He was born on Green Street, and grew up there. Than he worked for Sun Company for 40 Years. It was nice to see the history of the company, and the town. Dad loved it seeing the places that he use to walk to, and the placed he had work for so long. Thank You for giving him a chance to talk about the great memories again.
