Additional Notes Below: A building with a rich history stands proudly at the entrance to Overlook Colony. Known as “The Overlook”, it has seen many changes since 1917 when constructed by General Chemical Company. Initially, the two-story building with a full basement was used as the community center for Overlook Colony and was placed at the main entrance just off of Philadelphia Pike. The Colony was planned and developed by General Chemical to house their employees in what were very nice, substantial homes at the time. Besides being called the community center it was later known as Redman's Hall; a meeting place for a fraternal group. It also housed activities of the Holy Rosary Church and stores including Shinn's and later, Steins. If you walk the halls of our building you will notice a lovely plaque that was presented to the three of us by the Claymont Fire Company. It commemorates the fact that many years ago, all of the organizational meetings of the fire company were held in our building. Also, up until 1924, when the Claymont School was built on a lot donated by General Chemical, the community center provided several rooms to take care of the educational needs of the children in the Colony. In 1989, new owners purchased the building and since then have tried to keep the glory of the building's former days while completely modernizing the structure. Because of our efforts, they were presented with a New Castle County Historic Preservation Award in 2000 and were given a grant of $2,500 from General Chemical in 2002 to help beautify the front of the building. Much thought, work, and finances have been expended over the years. Having great tenants like the Queen Bean Café, Creative Communications, Edward Jones, Pop Culture and Dawn's, Lamb's Loft as well as our apartment dwellers have made this task very worthwhile.
