Greentown, a Delaware village, was established c.1782 after the Crawford campaign when it was realized how exposted their former village of Helltown was to potential attack. Greentown was nearly surrounded by swamps and the river. The village flurished until 1812 when the inhabitants were removed by the military and the town burned. Only a few returned and rebuilt at Greentown after the war.

The Greentown Preservation Asso. is non-profit and struggling to pay for the property and reconstruct a portion of the village. This sort of opportunity is rare and in the future will be nearly impossible. So please do come out and support our event and help to make our volunteer efforts successful.

Thanks,
Doc S.
