Before being explored in the 16th century, Delaware was inhabited by Native Americans such as the Lenape and Nanticoke.  In 1631 it was initially colonized by the Dutch at Zwaanendael which is near Lewes. Delaware was one of the 13 colonies that was involved in the American Revolution and on December 7, 1787, became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States and thus its known as “The First State”.
