Lewes Historical Society and Museums [DE]
From Captain Kidd and the eternal rhythms of the tides to the salty courage of the Delaware pilots and the nationally recognized architecture of the Lewes historic district, Lewes's past is colorful, unique, and proud. The Lewes Historical Society began in 1961 as local residents identified a need to preserve Lewes' architectural heritage and for an organization to act as a steward for Lewes's past, which stretches back to humble Dutch origins in 1631. The society runs 12 museums, all of which are historic house and living history museums.
The society offers access to all historic house museums, a variety of educational events and resources, including guided tours and sample curriculums, and seasonal events. The site offers information about all above activities and resources, including visitor information and brief historical information on all museums operated by the society, as well as information regarding educational programs.
