Regarding Shelby Collins House. Excerpt from the form about the historical significance of the historic district:
The village of Port Penn exists today as an unusually well preserved example of a small 19th century Delaware river town. The buildings that remain in Port Penn comprise a visually unified assemblage of residential, commercial and ecclesiastic structures which document its appearance in the late 19th century.
