This year marks the 375th anniversary of the founding of New Sweden, the first permanent European settlement in the Delaware River Valley. Despite its brief life, the colony left an indelible mark on the cultural memory of Wilmingtonians and Swedes alike. Now open in the Willingtown Square Gallery, New Sweden at 375 tells the story of this unique colony and the efforts of Delawareans to keep its history alive. Come explore 17th century Delaware and learn more about our connections across the Atlantic.
