Our motto is “A Wonderful Place to Live.” We are proud of our history, our government, and our community.With a small town ambiance and big city convenience, Elsmere, is one of the best communities in New Castle County. Bordering the City of Wilmington, the state’s largest city, and in the heart of the state’s most populated county, Elsmere provides quiet living and convenient access to shopping, recreation and educational institutions. The town is only one and a half hours drive from the beaches of Delaware and New Jersey and only 15 minutes from the campus of the University of Delaware.We have churches of all denominations, and our residential areas offer a diverse housing pool for home buyers of all income levels. Lastly, but possibly most important, is our Town Government’s response to the needs of our citizens. In short, Elsmere is a great community in which to live, work and raise a family.
