When looking at the city’s population it is interesting to see how many cultural events the city holds. Dover has a Symphony Orchestra, a Children’s Theatre, the Delaware State Archives and a museum which holds exhibits from the Colonial days. Today the Supreme Court of Delaware is placed on The Green, which is the central square in Dover.


Only 0.3 square miles of the city area is water, and 22.4 square miles is land. The city has a subtropical climate and the winters are not too harsh. There are only two weeks in the year when the temperature is somewhat around 20 F. And when it comes to snow, there isn’t much of it, and it melts really fast. Dover has hot summers but the spring is usually wet. The climate is pleasant and rainfall is equally spread throughout the year.


In 1683 William Penn founded Dover in the Kent County. The city became the capital of Delaware in 1777 when the British raiders represented a threat to the country. It is placed in the central position of the country so it has been somewhat safer than Newcastle, which was the central city until 1777. It was a few years later, in 1781 that the Delaware General Assembly decided that Dover will be the place where the assembly will stay for good. During the hard times of slavery, Dover was the Underground Railroad destination. The main reasons were Maryland, which supported the slave policy, and Pennsylvania, which was against it.


Dover De Military DefenseWhen it comes to city industry, Procter&Gamble and Kraft Foods are the biggest firms in the area. They make a big contribution to the city’s economy and employ a lot of citizens. A big part of the population works in the government or in the local Air Force Base. The ILC Dover is a big contributor to the economy, as they produce fabric which is used by the military and for aerospace. The Gatic, which is a big company in Dover, produces airtight access covers and iron gas. Paint products are made by the PPG industry. Storage cabinets are made by the Eagle Group, and Reichold Inc. produces polyester, coating, and adhesives. In the past, Dover was the center of industry. It had a coffee factory, an oil mill and a steam-powered corn mill, a candle factory and much more. Through the years, many factories were closed, but industry is still prosperous in the city. Also, in the past there were boots and shoes factories. They specialized in the producing army boots.

Military Base

Southeast of the city there is an Air Force Military Base – the 436th Airlift Wing which is a part of the Air Mobility Command and the 512th Airlift Wing which is a part of the Air Force Reserve are both stationed in the AFB. The base is special because it is the biggest in the Department of Defense when it comes to dealing with those military personnel who were killed. Every dead man or woman who comes from a battlefield, come to Dover first, and then they are transferred to their families. The Dover Air Force Base had the oldest air traffic tower until 2008, when the new 128-foot tall tower was built. The old one ended up in the base museum, which is open to public. The base was constructed in 1941, just after Pearl Harbor was attacked. The base got its name after the United States Air Force was founded – before that its name was Dover Army Airfield.
