The old New Castle & Frenchtown Railroad Ticket Office, in Battery Park near Delaware Street in New Castle. The ticket office served as a station on the early railroad, and is the second-oldest extant railroad station in the United States.

The Liston Front Range Lighthouse, on Belts Road at Bay View Beach. The lighthouse was built in 1906 to aid in navigation up the Delaware River. The Liston Rear Range Light, which accompanied the front ragne light, was dismantled long ago.

A labyrinth in front of Old Swedes Church, along Church Street in Wilmington. Old Swedes Church was built in 1698 and is the oldest church in continuous operation in the United States. The labyrinth in front is meant to help clear the mind for prayer, and also historically was used with prayer to take the place of a pilgrimage when travelling was not possible.

The Smyrna Opera House, on South Street at Main Street in Smyrna. The opera house was built in 1870 and never served as an opera house. Rather, is functioned as a town hall, and was the site of lectures or performances by Presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan, Frederick Douglass, and General Tom Thumb, among others.

A close look at the materials used at the house at 49 The Strand in New Castle. The house is a rare survival of a frame house, this with flush-mounted board siding, in this part of New Castle, that suffered a fire in 1823.

That's not an old barn in your September 25th photo; it's the remains of the Ward Spoke Mill, on the lower portion of Upper Pike Creek Road.

Thanks for the information! I still have a lot to learn about Delaware, and my research with historic maps didn't turn up much when I did a quick search. Looking back, it should've been obvious that it wasn't a barn; no one puts windows on the ground floor of a barn.
