About Lewes, DE - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Lewes’ beautiful, sun-drenched summers are the ideal time to check out the nearby beach attractions and sites. When the weather cools in the winter, locals find excitement inside at local eateries, clubs, bars and museums.  Kids head outside for snowball fights and snow cream. But it is just not a place full of seaside fun in the sun. It is a family community and the location of the initial European settlement in the state of Delaware. Though settlers had been colonizing the area since the mid 1600s, Lewes was incorporated on Feb. 2, 1818.

Why? At first, Lewes was a Dutch whaling and trading community (originally named Zwaanendael or “Swan Valley”) established in the heat of the summer of 1631. When a neighboring tribe of Lenape Native Americans killed 32 Dutch settlers in 1632, the settlement all but disappeared and the region remained abandoned by the Dutch until 1662. It was that year that Pieter Cornelisz Plockhoy of Zierikzee led the effort to re-establish a settlement on the land once again. Just a single year afterward, the settlement was once more ruined when the English took New Netherland from the Dutch. The British said that they had ripped out every nail in every structure in the city. It did not end there, of course.

In the freezing and harsh wintry weather of 1673, while the region was briefly under Dutch control another time, the settlement was attacked and burned to the ground.  In 1682, King Charles III gave the Delaware colonies to William Penn as a repayment for a familial debt. When Penn arrived, he renamed the county and called it Sussex and renamed the settlement, as well, calling it Lewes. The name was a tribute to sites back in his native country.  Another bit of interesting historical knowledge: Lewes Beach was a central stop on the Underground Railroad and several houses in Lewes housed slaves.  "Safe houses" such as these were recognized by a lone candle placed in the top window of the home. You can still go check out some of those houses today.
