Description

Join the Delaware Historical Society for a discussion about the history of the planning, development, and impact of Interstate 95 in the City of Wilmington, Delaware. Using archival research and interviews with former residents of the Jackson-Adams and Maryland Avenue neighborhoods, this presentation Dr. Nina David, Samuel Seo, and Joshua Solge tell the story of the policymaking that led to the current location of Interstate 95, and the people and places impacted along the way. In particular, the notable architecture, businesses and cultural institutions, and community life of neighborhoods that were uprooted to make way for the Interstate.
