Doing research in the Delaware Historical Society

This is for the Genealogist family historian. Good resources and some great older Newspaper files but not for the "Just curious".

A great little museum demonstrating life in Delaware from the 1600's through today. Learn about natives who were here before European settlement. Celebrate the many Delawareans who went on to succeed in politics, social reform and scientific revolution. See how railways and waterways led to economic boon. Celebrate the First State in this well-laid out, conveniently located museum!

We took our home school group here in September and did two of their programs. The kids loved the hands on experience and the staff was very knowledgable
