Description

For nearly 150 years people have been discovering the rich and varied past of the First State through the Delaware Historical Society, a statewide, non-profit organization that explores, preserves, shares and promotes Delaware history, heritage and culture to strengthen our community.

The Delaware Historical Society owns and operates the Delaware History Museum; a nationally recognized Research Library; Old Town Hall; Willingtown Square, four 18th-century houses surrounding a picturesque urban courtyard located in Wilmington; as well as the Read House & Gardens located in historic New Castle, recognized as an “American Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service; and the Delaware History Museum and Mitchell Center for African American Heritage, which opened October 1, 2016.
