Auto Repair in Odessa, DE

Odessa, DE

The small town of Odessa is located in New Castle County in northern Delaware. Covering a land area of just one-half square mile along the Appoquinimink River, Odessa is home to fewer than 400 people.

Originally known as Cantwell’s Bridge, this small port town was renamed in the mid-19th century after the Ukrainian port city of Odessa. The community continued to slowly expand and saw electricity for the first time in 1927. Today, Odessa remains a small town rich in history, maintaining a sizable historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places, made up of more than 80 commercial and residential structures.
