Shawnee Vacation Resorts: The History
Named for the Native American Shawnee tribes that once inhabited the Delaware River Valley, the village of Shawnee-on-Delaware is a coveted timeshare destination and the home base for the Shawnee Resorts timeshare group. While the town became a mecca for vacationers following the creation of a 27-hole golf course in the early twentieth century and the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area in the mid twentieth century, the first Shawnee timeshare properties were not sold here until the mid 1970s.
The story of how the small two-island village of Shawnee-on-Delaware became a first-class resort town is rich in history. In the early 1900s, entrepreneur C.C. Worthington began the construction of Buckwood Inn, and Shawnee became the home of the country's first truly exclusive (seasonal) resort hotel. Buckwood changed ownership several times until 1874, when it settled into the hands of a real estate developer who saw value in the year-round timeshare model and developed Shawnee Village—Shawnee-on-Delaware's first timeshare property.
