Fodor's Review

This was home to John Dickinson, one of America's founders, and his former dwelling gives visitors a glimpse of 18th-century plantation life in Delaware's Kent County. Tour guides in costume depict characters from the era, enabling visitors to understand the contrasting lifestyles of the wealthy Dickinson family and those of their tenants, poor whites, slaves, and free blacks during the 1700s and early 1800s.
