Delaware Historic Accommodations Guide

The Terry House
Terry House
(Bed & Breakfast)
130 Delaware Street
New Castle, DE 19720

The Terry House Bed and Breakfast, located in historic New Castle, Delaware, is a Federal Townhouse, circa 1860. Architects regard the Terry House as impressive, and Federal in architectural style, characteristic of its period, the middle 1800's — that of 1859-1865, when it was built. Howell Terry began to build his house just before the Civil War of 1860. The Terry heirs sold the property to the New Castle Century Club in 1916, which was organized by a group of women interested in civic improvement and the cultural advancement of its members. The house was purchased in 1985 and renovated into the current arrangement as a Bed and Breakfast. The house is the same on the exterior as it was originally built, with the exception of a row of windows on the 4th floor at the back. The first floor and stairwell are in original condition. The kitchen has been modernized, and the guest rooms have been altered to include private baths. A small guest room on the second floor has built-in cabinets that were installed for the kitchen, and that was part of one of the apartments when the building was the Century Club. Our guest rooms are spacious, with private baths, queen size beds and modern amenities. The rooms offer a view of Battery Park or Market Square and the Court House and the Delaware River during the winter months. The Terry House porches look out over Battery Park and Delaware River and are the perfect spot to relax after a day of shopping, sightseeing, or special events in New Castle.

MAKE IT AN HISTORIC STAY is a human-curated, invitation only presentation of select historic lodging accommodations, including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges in the United States.

Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably significant to world history with respect to their architecture, engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging, excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.

Sadly, countless historically significant structures have been (and continue to be) lost forever.

Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
