Bridgeville Delaware is located in Sussex County is home to about 2100 residents. It’s part of the Saulsberry, Maryland Delaware Metro area. This is the oldest community in Western Sussex County and land transactions date back to the 1680s. It was originally named for a bridge that was built in 1730 located over a tributary of the Nanticoke River. A small town began to develop along the waterway known as Bridge Branch and the town was incorporated in 1871. Today, this small community is home to several clubs, luxury estates, and tree-lined streets. Bridgeville is just 30 miles from Rehoboth Beach and Dover, the capital of Delaware.
Bridgeville is also home to the Apple Scrapple Festival celebrating local apples and the Rapa Scrapple company, the largest company in Bridgeville producing scrapple since 1926. This is one of the largest festivals in the community offering over 250 vendors, arts, and craft booths.
Because Bridgeville is so small there really are not individual neighborhoods although there is the Heritage Shores Club. Heritage Shores is an active adult community with homes ranging from about $220,000-$380,000. This is a golf course community with both new and resale homes. It is the only 55 and over community with its own golf course in the entire state of Delaware. This Arthur Hills 18 hole championship course offers a beautiful setting whether you love the game or not. There are two homebuilders on site with a wide range of single-family homes. When built out, Heritage Shores will cover over 1800 homes.
