Wilmington in New Castle County, Delaware — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Old Farmers Bank
The Delaware State Bar Association was originally organized in 1901. For many years its offices were located in various rented spaces in Wilmington. When the State of Delaware announced its intention to move the courthouse from Rodney Square to Fifth and King Streets, the Delaware State Bar Association purchased the Old Farmers Bank Building nearby. After renovation, this historic structure was occupied as the new Bar Center in October 2000.
Erected 2006 by Delaware Public Archives. (Marker Number NC-155.)
