In New Castle, Delaware, history is all around you! Among one of the most historically known cities in the state, New Castle is famous for its “New Castle Historic District”. This area is made up of about a six block square in the middle of New Castle. In this small piece of land, there are over 480 historical monuments, buildings, and attractions. Each of these items comes from a period of about 250 years in history (approx. 1700-1950).

The town is full of colonial-style buildings, with historical European influence. You have a grand opportunity to soak up all of the history that New Castle has to offer on their “Old New Castle Day”, which comes around every 3 weekends in May.

Besides historical monuments, the town also has an array of antique shops, trinket shops, art museums and book stores. Of course, you can enjoy all of your shopping a lot more knowing that everything you buy will not be taxed! Thats right, Delaware is one of the few states that does not charge sale stay for things that are purchased within the state, whether it be clothes or a car.

If you want to take a bite of history, you can swing by Jessop’s Tavern, located in the center of town, which offers traditional American fare and a variety of beers. The interior of the restaurant is inviting and warm. It is recommended that you reserve a table, as there aren't very many.

It is not uncommon to see sidewalks and roads destroyed by tree roots in this area, as many of the trees there were planted hundreds of years ago, so they've had plenty of time to take over!

New Castle is a great place to visit if you want a laid-back atmosphere and history lesson at the same time.

QuestionThe interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT.With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult.As a result of such a small staff, there arein many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

QuestionTrailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.

QuestionIn 1893, the Office of Road Inquiry (ORI)was establishedas an organization.However, in 1905 the namewas changedto the Office Public Records (OPR).The organization then went on to become a division of the United States Department of Agriculture. As seen throughout history, organizations seem incapable of maintaining permanent names.So, the organization's namewas changedthree more times, first in 1915 to the Bureau of Public Roads and again in 1939 to the Public Roads Administration (PRA). Yet again, the name was later shifted to the Federal Works Agency, although itwas abolishedin 1949.Finally, in 1949, the name reverted to the Bureau of Public Roads, falling under the Department of Commerce. With so many name changes, it can be difficult to keep up to date with such organizations. This is why it is most important to research and educate yourself on such matters.
