Along with the 400+ other units in the National Park Service, First State National Historical Park participates in the "Passport to Your National Parks" program.
Since First State National Historical Park consists of seven sites throughout the state, there are seven site-specific stamps to accompany the locations. The locations are listed below, with their addresses and websites. Please note that from site to site there are different hours of operations.
In addition, multiple sites have the commemorative Underground Railroad Network to Freedom stamp. Further information about the stories that connect these sites to the larger, national Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program is below.
John Dickinson Plantation: one of the largest plantations in Delaware, once home to about sixty slaves. After inheriting the property from his father, John Dickinson granted his slaves full freedom in 1785 as a result of Quaker beliefs.
