Delaware High Point - Ebright Azimuth

Photos Of Our Visit To The Tallest Point In Delaware; Near Delaware / Pennsylvania Border - August 23, 2008

Delaware Highest Point

The Delaware high point might me one of the most peculiar experiences for a visitor. Standing at 448 feet in elevation, only Florida's high point (Britton Hill) sits lower at 345 feet. Standing there, one can notice a slight crest on Ebright Road. Delaware's high point is named Ebright Azimuth and is located at an intersection in a suburban neighborhood - Ebright Road and Ramblewood Drive.

As we stood at the monument, a plethora of vehicles drove past on Ebright Road. Many drivers seemed hurried by the apparent fast pace of life in this populated region. I felt self-conscious to gaze at the large blue sign. My hunch was onlookers probably saw us and thought, "Oh there's another wacky high pointer who drove hundreds of miles to visit our neighborhood." Such a statement would be very true! :)

Bernie and I had a fantastic visit. It was a warm day with sunny blue skies. We were elated to get out of the car and stretch after driving all morning from West Virginia. To enjoy a state high point made it even more special. Delaware can be very proud of its high point.

Enjoy the photos and videos below! -Steve

    Across the street from the monument is Ramblewood Drive, a street with suburban homes.

    Based on previous video below, work has been done on this road to calm traffic. This is likely in part due to the large amounts of visitors and tourists who visit this location. There are stop signs on each side of Ebright Road, marked pedestrian crossings and a red brick area that requires vehicles turn slightly to get through.
    Radio Tower A tall radio tower is nearby.

    One more fascinating piece of information: The top photo is the westerly view of the Delaware High Point. Beyond the grassy lawn is a trailer park. Bernie and I visited the area and noticed many of the trailer homes are elevated a few feet above the natural high point. The adjacent photo may not show the slight rise in the ground of this trailer home, but it was very noticeable with the naked eye. Once again, the prohibition of human structures or manmade slopes come into play here. This does not count as the highest point!
