The Delaware River is an amazing river with a rich history...

We are just north of where George Washington historically crossed!

The Delaware River and the surrounding river country offer some of the most beautiful views one could witness. From the flying American Bald Eagles to the magestic Devil's Tea Table cliffs that overlook the river and the abundance of diverse wildlife, the Delaware River really does have it all. You and your family can come see the iconic river where our great nation formed, and it's right in your backyard!

Here, we hope that you can learn a thing or two about a really special place about the Delaware River.

EARLY MAP OF THE DELAWARE RIVER (CIRCA 1655)

1655 Delaware River Map

DELAWARE RIVER COMMERCE

The magnitude of the commerce of Philadelphia has made the improvements of the river below that port of great importance. Small improvements were attempted by Pennsylvania as early as 1771. Commerce was once important on the upper river, primarily prior to railway competition (1857).

In the "project of 1885" the U.S. government undertook systematically the formation of a 26-foot (7.9 m) channel 600 feet (180 m) wide from Philadelphia to deep water in Delaware Bay. The River and Harbor Act of 1899 provided for a 30-foot (9.1 m) channel 600 feet (180 m) wide from Philadelphia to the deep water of the bay.
