Castles in Delaware

Are there castles in Delaware?  Yes, well sort of…    In our search for every castle in the United States and Canada, we looked high and low for castles, forts, watchtowers and chateaux.  Whilst most states tend to have at least a few of these types of properties, Delaware 'The First State' doesn't seem to have many – surprising perhaps as the state is one of the closest geographically to Europe, the inspiration for most of America's castles.   

Read below for the castles, chateaux and forts which we've uncovered in Delaware and let us know if we've missed any.
