Old Swedes Church, at 7th & Church Streets in Wilmington, was built in 1698. It is the oldest church in the United States in continuous operation. The church was built by Swedish Lutheran missionaries, who were sent to tend to the descendants of the Swedish settlers who first landed in 1638, in what was already an English world.
