Founded in 1922, Ardentown is located in northern New Castle County, Delaware. It is one of the three single-tax villages – Arden, Ardentown, and Ardencroft – that together are commonly known as The Ardens. With approximately 120 leaseholds and 250 residents, Ardentown is the second oldest of The Ardens. It is also part of the Ardens Historic District, which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2003. In Ardentown, we love our trees. Land leases stipulate that trees may not be cut down or removed without written permission from the Trustees. We advise residents to keep trees healthy by cutting ivy, grape vine, or other invasive vines at the base. The communal land of approximately 146 acres in the village is the legal responsibility of three trustees. That includes the land leased to leaseholders for 99 years, the woods, and the greens. The roads and a large tract known as the Sunnyside Nature Reserve are the responsibility of the village’s municipal government. The state Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) considers about 37 acres in our community an important and protected natural area, which contains some of the oldest and largest trees in Delaware.
