About Delaware

Kent County

Kent County is located in the central portion of Delaware. Its largest city—Dover—has been Delaware’s capitol since 1777. Kent is still closely associated with state politics, as well as agriculture, and its two racinos—Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, and Harrington Raceway.
