Hey, not everyone has two streets named for them!
Old downtown in Dover
The Delaware State House
Buildings of Capitol Square
One of 55 full size Liberty Bell Replicas. Each state received
one in 1976
Constitution Park where the first ratification of our constitution
Fifty-five bells were struck as part of a savings bond drive held from May 15 to July 4, 1950 with the slogan "Save for Your Independence." They were given to the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S Territories, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. The Truman Library in Independence, MO has one (Harry was president) and one is in Annecy-le-Vieux, France the city where the replicas were cast in 1950.
The bells were to be displayed for the public and rung on patriotic occasions. Some are rather difficult to locate as they have been relegated to storage and/or refurbishing or to display in universities, libraries and museums.
Those I could find located near or in capitols as originally intended are pictured on these pages.
The outline in the bricks designates the location of the porch
where the constitution was read to the Legislative members.
William Penn was instrumental in the founding of Delaware as
well as Pennsylvania. This street is one border of Capitol Square.
