Things to see in Dover
The historic downtown Dover district
Visitors who love sightseeing will enjoy taking a walk to see the historic architecture located on State Street. Near the intersection with Loockerman Street, the road is composed of cobblestones, and visitors can see the historic Supreme Court building. Between Governors Avenue and Division Street, there are a series of historic Victorian-style houses that were constructed between the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The Old State House Museum building was originally constructed in 1791. The structure was eventually converted into a museum after legislative staff moved to a more modern building in 1933. The Biggs Museum of American Art provides free entry to view a personal collection of American art. The Schwartz Center for the Arts is the place to go to enjoy the symphony, local theater and historic architecture. There are more than 10 museums in the area that are nationally recognized.
