On December 7, 1787, at the Golden Fleece Tavern in Dover, Delaware's legislature ratified the United States Constitution, and Delaware thus became "The First State." While still a hub for legislative matters, Dover also boasts a restored downtown, modern industry, rolling farms, and numerous special events that all give the town a unique identity. A few miles away from the bustle of Legislative Hall, horses and carriages still pull Amish farmers along pristine country roads. The memorable photographs and detailed captions in Images of America: Dover offer a fascinating look at the nation's first state capital, including its residents, events, farms, and local architecture.
