The Hale-Byrnes House was owned by Millwright Warwick Hale. Samuel, his son inherited this property on Muscle Cripple. In 1750, Samuel sold the property to David Finney of New Castle. In 1773, a Quaker preacher named Daniel Byrnes bought the property and a left wing was built. The name of the house got its name from the first and last owners of the house.

On September 6, 1777, the House was a silent witness to a war council. This historic house is highly regarded in the list of National Register of Historic Places. The first building to ever receive the State Heritage Plaque in Delaware is the Hale-Byrnes House. The House acts as the southern fix of the Wild and Scenic White Clay Creek by the federal government and an integral site of the Washington to Rochambeau National Historic Trail which spans on nine states.

The House can be viewed by the public every first Wednesday from 12 till 3 pm. The area downstairs can also be rented by groups for meetings and private parties with less than 25 members.
