Laurel, DE Overview

From the simplicity of the earliest Federal-period homes to the opulence of Victorian residences on tree-lined Central Avenue, Laurel's Historic District displays a veritable smorgasbord of architectural styles.  The uniqueness of such diversity and the high survival rate of original building stock merited placement on the National Register of Historic Places, the largest such district in Delaware.  Laurel also has two of the largest indoor/outdoor flea markets around.  One covers twelve acres and is a destination point for bus tours up and down the East Coast.  It was recently cited by Good Housekeeping magazine as one of the top fifty flea markets in the country.  It is also the hub of furniture shopping on the Delmarva Peninsula, offering the region's three largest retailers.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
