One of the oldest European structures in Delaware is the Pagan Creek Dike, next to New Road near Pilottown. The dike was built in 1660 by Dutch settlers, and was used to carry a road across the marshland that was prevalent inland from the settlements. The road was presumably used for trade with native tribes. The dike is now covered with trees.
