Fine Old 19th Century Hotel/Tavern Looks Forward to Strong Run Through 21st Century

This fine old building in downtown Delaware City always catches my attention when I visit the canal town.  Located on a triangular lot alongside the original canal, it incorporates four periods of construction, ranging from the 1830s to the mid-twentieth century according to the Delaware Dept. of Transportation.  The Central Hotel/Sterling’s Tavern was recently sold and there are plans to reopen it as a commercial space, contributing to the revitalization of Delaware City.
