Fortescue, a small island located in Downe Township, has a history that dates back to the early 1700s. Situated on the shores of the Delaware Bay, it was once portrayed as one of the finest locations for a summer resort, especially for those fond of fishing and hunting. Possessing many natural advantages at little expense to visitors, this charming village became an oasis for vacationers from surrounding towns and cities in the 1800s. At a time when roads were poor, visitors found Fortescue easily accessible by water or horse and buggy, and they flocked to bathe in the water and breathe the invigorating salt air. Although many of the tourist attractions are now gone, Fortescue continues to come alive in the early spring as fishermen return. Around Fortescue showcases the history of this small fishing community.
