Well, of course you did. But you probably didn’t know that this summer I’ll be featuring First State facts for my friends and followers – say that 5 times fast! – on Twitter. The series, Did You Know Delaware, will feature a series of interesting facts on Twitter to celebrate the state we know and love.
All summer long I will be revealing Did You Know Delaware facts with the hashtag #DYDK.
Here are some interesting facts you might have missed:
The 1989 film Dead Poets Society was shot at St. Andrew’s School in Middletown.
The Fenwick Island lighthouse was painted in 1880 for a total cost of about $5 and added to National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
And today’s #DYKD fact: This Sunday, June 15th, Delaware celebrates its 238 year independence from both Pennsylvania and the British Crown.
