USNPS ponders what to call biggest parcel in First State NHP

Federal officials are working to finalize a name for the outdoor centerpiece of Delaware's First State Historic National Park. 

The park was federally designated in 2014 and is made up of seven locations — places like the Old Swedes Historic Site in Wilmington and the Court House in Old New Castle — but there is a question over what to officially name the 1,100 acres of rolling hills and forests along Brandywine Creek three miles north of Wilmington.
