Founder of Port Penn
David Stewart, Sr.
David Stewart, Sr. the founder of Port Penn had great plans for this community. The family home is one of the multiple stops along the walking tour in Port Penn, Delaware. His dream was to develop Port Penn as a strong and firm competitor with other ports. Some of the more established ports were in Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Unfortunately, due to its limited ability to expand and the transportation changes it didn’t happen. The home stayed in the family for six generations.
