xzmattzx's daily Delaware photo

I liked hkskyline's daily photo thread, so I thought I would give it a try. My daily photo thread will only contain pictures of my home state. I have plenty of pictures from around the state of Delaware, so I will be able to showcase several various places.

I will include some brief information on where the picture is from, and will also sometimes include a little bit of history information.

Welcome to Delaware. This sign greets you as you enter the state from Pennsylvania on State Route 52 near Centerville.

Great work It will be hard to post a new photo every day, but I am sure you will manage to share many great images - you cannot get sick, or go out of state, you understand that, right?

Yeah, I might have to cheat a little a few times this year, but I should be able to keep things prettyon-schedule.

The Deer Park Tavern at the west end of Main Street in Newark. Legend has it that Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Raven" here while staying overnight on a trip to Philadelphia.

It's actually the Deer Park Tavern, but you're close enough.
