Georgetown has a unique history among all of the towns and cities in Delaware. Georgetown was born due to border disputes between William Penn’s family and Frederick Calvert, 6th Baron of Baltimore. These disputes delayed discussion of the location of the county seat, which was initially going to be Lewes. Although Lewes served as the first county seat for most of the 18th century, much of the population, particularly the growing population in the west, found traveling to Lewes inconvenient and difficult. Originally a swampy and uninhabited area, Georgetown was then chosen as the second county seat of Sussex County due to its central location. While other American cities were constructed using a grid system or town square, Georgetown was laid out as a circle, which acts as the center of town to this day and is still called “The Circle.”
A sense of history is vital in Georgetown, having a unique holiday called “Return Day.” Return Day is a half-day-long parade and festival that takes place two days after Election Day. The holiday was born from the public congregating in Georgetown 2 days after the election to hear the results. Delivery of election results to the courthouse took roughly two days by horseback from the state capital, Dover. Georgetown is also home to the Georgetown Speedway, and Perdue Farms has a strong presence due to being a significant employer.
