Delaware comprises only three counties: Sussex County, Kent County, and New Castle county. Therefore, it is the 2nd smallest state in the United States of America. Delaware acquired its statehood on December 7, 1787, with its capital in Dover. The state's motto is liberty and independence and is quite conspicuous on the Greats Seal of The State of Delaware.
The state also has several nicknames such as the Diamond state, small wonder, blue hen state, and the first state. It earned the name first state because it was the first state to ratify the United States constitution.
The United States Postal Services(USPS) offers various postage stamps that conform with Delaware's significant moments and symbols. Delaware's postage stamps are its 1982 state the United States Postal Services(USPS) availed and flower issue with Delaware's state bird, the blue chicken, and its states flower, the peach blossom.
Another is its 22 cents stamp in the bicentenary statehood issue, which has the date that Delaware got its statehood, a militiaman who defends the American ideals, and a man who signifies Delaware's heritage in farming, coastal commerce, and shipbuilding.
The Kenton post office on Maine Street is Delaware's oldest post office. Francis Greenwell built this two-story Italianate post office in 1881 on a 0.2-acre piece of land. The Kenton post office became part of the Kenton Historic District and became NRHP (national register of historic places) listed in 1983.
Another historically significant post office is the United States Post Office, Courthouse and Customhouse in Rodney Square, Wilmington. The classical revival architecture is quite outstanding in this three-story building. It has six gigantic stone pillars across its main entrance. However, it is currently the headquarters of Wilmington's trust, an international corporate and banking institution.
Currently, there are multiple post offices in Delaware. Post offices can be found in Nassau, Wilmington, Newark, New Castle, Camden, Wyoming, Hockessin, Lewes, Claymont, and Delaware City.
