Christiana Community Center- In Color

Sometimes a building is more than a building, it's a memory. Revisiting this photo in color, brings light to the history behind this home turned into a community center, which is now a piece of history.

Christiana was once a home to many of our founding fathers, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's named after the Christiana River, which was an important landing for early settlers. George Washington was said to often stop here to rest, and during the Revolutionary War troops landed here to fight back a British Invasion at Cooches' Bridge which was the only revolutionary battle in Delaware. Holding onto it's old charm (although surrounded by the city), it still reminds it's passer by's of a much quieter time in history.
