History & History Related Items

Delmar history:

Rich in railroad history, Delmar straddles the Delaware and Maryland borders in southwest Delaware, making it a key point of the Mason-Dixon Line. Easy to reach west of Highway 13 or Route 54, the town is minutes north of Salisbury, Maryland and south of Seaford, Delaware. Notable railroad sites include the 19th century highball signal located near the railroad tracks in the center of town. Recognized as the official beginning of the Mason-Dixon line (1763-1767), the Cornerstone and Middlepoint Marker of that famous survey is located just five miles west of town. The Mason-Dixon line is a prominent historical fact in Delaware, since it forms the western and southern boundaries of the state. It wasn't until the Delaware Railroad reached the Maryland Border in 1859 that the town, one of the rare U.S communities divided by state lines, was born and named after its two mother states.
The founding of Delmar: 1859
