Did You Know?

Archeologists have found remains of prehistoric human settlements on the Delaware River dating back 10,000 years or more. Lenni Lenape Native American tribes appeared some 4,000 years ago. The first lasting settlement on the Upper Delaware River was started at Cushetunk around 1750 by Connecticut residents in search of land ownership.
