Northern New Castle County, Delaware
Incorporating the Northern part of the state, Northern New Castle County includes Wimington, Claymont, Brandywine, Carrcroft, and so much more. The first permanent European settlement on Delaware soil was Fort Christina, resulting from Peter Minuit's 1638 expedition on the Swedish vessels Fogel Grip and Kalmar Nyckel. The Swedes laid out the town at the site of modern-day Wilmington. They contracted with the Lenape Native Americans for land of Old Cape Henlopen north to Sankikans (Trenton Falls), and inland as far as they desired. However, a dispute ensued between the Swedes and the Dutch, who asserted a prior claim to that land. The county's legislative body is a thirteen-member county council, consisting of twelve members elected by district and one president elected at large.
