Woodburn, the Delaware Governor's Residence

Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

Woodburn at XmasYesterday I visited Woodburn, the Delaware Governor's residence in the State Capital, Dover. This home, built c. 1798 by Charles Hillyard III, is one of the finest Middle Period Georgian houses in Delaware.

Decorated for the holidays by a "friends of" group, a guide explained the history of the house to the group of visitors who walked in during the First Saturdays in the First State program, when the residence is open to the public.



Woodburn Dining rmThere are many lovely antiques and silver pieces in the house, and the dining room was set up with punch and some very yummy homemade cookies. I come here when I get the chance, and it was nice to see the old place again. Governor and Mrs. Carney are not in residence very often, as they have a home in Wilmington.
