History is preserved in beautiful Rockford Park
The Overlook at Rockford Falls is located within walking distance of Rockford Park and Bancroft Mills. This area had humble beginnings dating back to 1831, when English immigrant John Bancroft opened a textile mill. At the time, the mill was the largest of its kind in the country. By the 1930s, it was the largest mill in the world that was still standing.
The Bancroft family had a love for the arts, and is credited with the opening of the Delaware Art Center in 1938. Within the center lies the Delaware Art Museum. Highlights include a 9-acre sculpture garden, various exhibits of modern American art, and weekly studio art classes.
The Bancroft’s preservation efforts also include Alapocas Run State Park, located within Brandywine Valley. The parkland contains 26,000 square feet of playground for kids called the Can-Do Playground, which also includes an old quarry with a fully functional rock-climbing wall.
Live in a home surrounded by scenic natural beauty
Not far from Bancroft Mills lies Rockford Park, one of the oldest parks in Wilmington. It was donated to the city by the Bancroft family in 1889. The park contains a 100-year-old stone water tower as its main focal point, but also features numerous hiking paths, acres of woodlands, plentiful green spaces, tennis courts and an off-leash dog park — all available for residents of The Overlook at Rockford Falls to take advantage of. Joggers, bike riders, picnickers, and kite flyers couldn’t ask for a more serene setting.
