There is so much to see in this area - lovely and historical! It is on a park for children to be able to play or if you just want to take a walk. There are beautiful homes to see all around this that will take you back in time.

A tiny white structure in Battery Park visible on the right hand side near the end of Delaware St. Considering its age the ticket office is in pretty good condition, with an obviously modern roof. I've found it's a neat subject for photographs depending on the light. It's behind a fence so you can't really view it closely. There's a... More

Located in Battery Park in Historic New Castle, Delaware, a short drive from the Delaware Memorial Bridge (I-295). Follow Rt. 9 south to the "Historic New Castle" sign. Turn left onto Delaware Avenue, the main drag of the little town. The closer you get to the Delaware River the further back in time you go. The small white structure is... More
