Woodburn, The Governor's House
Woodburn has served as the official residence of the Governor of Delaware since it was purchased by the state in 1965. Today, historians credit Woodburn's historical importance as much to the home's architecture as to its previous notable residents. Gentlemen farmers, landowners, an abolitionist, two U.S. Senators, two doctors, a dentist, a judge and eight recent Delaware Governors have all left their imprints on this fine home. This home, built c. 1798 by Charles Hillyard III, is one of the finest Middle Period Georgian houses in Delaware. You will find detailed information on this Web site about the history of Woodburn. We hope that you have a chance to come and visit this beautiful home.

The Schwartz Center for the Arts
The Schwartz Center for the Arts was originally constructed in 1904 and known as The Dover Opera House. George M. Schwartz expanded it into a movie theater in 1923 and tabbed it The Capital Theater. For years the Theater flourished but in the 1970s fell into a state of disrepair and in 1982 the doors were closed. After an extensive statewide fundraising campaign spearheaded by Board Chair Frank Fantini (then Vice President of Independent Newspapers) led to extensive modernization and expansion, the beautiful $8.3 million facility reopened in October, 2001 as the Schwartz Center for the Arts.
