Wilmington Manor has an historic district that includes a series of beautiful Victorian homes and townhouses. Many of the homes date back to the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds, when the area was a bustling industrial center. The homes in this area were built during this time period to meet the needs of the local people. Because the city was so small, many of the homes had built-in factories. Most of the factories are still there today, and some are being used for the manufacturing of shoes, furniture, clothing and other products. You can also find many old mills and warehouses that have been converted into homes or retail shops. See here for information about What You Should Know About Talleyville, Delaware.
