Our History

On April 29, 2004, the Delaware General Assembly supported and the Governor signed into law HB 396 which appropriated funding to design and build a 150-bed veterans home. Dedication of the Home was done on Delaware Day (December 7), 2006. The Home opened to residents in June, 2007.

On July 13, 2010 the Friends of the Delaware Veterans Home held a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the pavilion. The pavilion features covered, outdoor program space in addition to a connected fishing pier over the stocked lake adjacent to the Home’s property.
