One of the oldest surviving communities in western Sussex County, Bridgeville is located in Sussex County in the southwestern part of Delaware. Long before Sussex County was subdivided into hundreds, a community in the 1680's began to develop along the small waterway known as Bridge Branch. The name Bridgeville was adopted around 1810 and the Town was incorporated in 1871. The population of Bridgeville is approximately 1,436.
Today, Bridgeville is a pleasant agricultural-oriented community known for fine homes; broad tree-lined streets; and apples, scrapple, cornfields, whitetail deer and championship golf. http://bridgeville.delaware.gov
