History and nature collide at Brecknock County Park, where there are three miles of hiking trails, wetlands, and even a butterfly and native-plant garden. As if that weren't enough, there are also athletic fields, volleyball courts, and all the amenities you'd expect to find at a major county park.

At the rear of the property is the historic Goggin House, built soon after the year 1700. This was the boyhood home of Dr. Joshua Clayton, the first governor of Delaware and the last man to hold the title of "president of Delaware." Efforts are now under way to restore this home and turn it into a small working farm or an interpretive museum.
