“Poor service”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

All the service woman wanted to do was help an old lady book a zillion tours and sell figurines :( she kept busy and was disinterested in helping us! Totally blew off our questions of what to do in the area. I would suggest just walking around and searching for yourself.

“Great historic tour by trolley”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

A most informative tour of the historic district led by a member of the historical society. Air conditioned trolley...it's not big so reservations are recommended.

“Oldest House”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Great little historic colonial house(I believe the original part 1665), which houses the historical society. Very engaging staff.

“Quaint But Enthusiastic”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

On a recent stroll through downtown Lewes one saturday morning my wife and I stopped into the Lewes Historical Society museum and were greeted by a enthusiastic young lady who then proceeded to give us a private, 45 minute tour of the museum house and it's history, along with the history of Lewes itself. We had a genuinely enjoyable time and walked out smiling about our new home. The whole arrangement, which includes an area of town designated a Historic District was a peaceful, relaxing respite and we were happy for our choice.

“Wonderful Old Buildings”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

The Lewes Historical Society offers docent-led tours through a complex of historic buildings, most of which had been moved to the site. The tour took us through a couple of homes, a general store, schoolhouse and doctor's office. The buildings were all furnished with appropriate historic furnishings and artifacts. The general store and doctor's office were especially fascinating! A must for history buffs!
