My husband and I were visiting Lewes for the first time, and since we like learning about local history, we signed up for the evening "Legends Tour." Our guide was Scott, and his stories were wonderful!

We walked around the historic area of Lewes (not a long walk) on a pleasant October evening to visit a number of old buildings, and to go inside a few of them. Scott told us about the people who lived there and the "gossip" about what really happened to some of them. We heard about a number of ghostly happenings too!
This kind of local history doesn't always make it into the official history books, but really makes the former townspeople come alive in our minds!

We highly recommend this tour! We hope to return to Lewes and experience more of the Lewes Historical Society events.

My two daughters (aged 7 and 10) and I had a great time on the Lewes Legends Evening Walking Tour. The tour included going inside several of the Lewes Historical Society's buildings around town and hearing about sordid stories and hauntings. Definitely recommended for adults and kids who enjoy a mix of history and ghost stories.

We took the Legends tour, it was informative and a lot of fun. Scott L filled us in on the local legends and ghosts, along with the history of the town. Would recommend

The society has a few properties and it is worthwhile to visit all of them. We particularly enjoyed the Shipcarpenter Street Campus this time with its many historic buildings and nice area to stroll through and explore. The buildings were not open this time due to lingering late-COVID rules but still there was so much to see!
The informational signs helped us during out self-guided tours.

Lewes is a gem of a town! We loved the Maritime Tour offered by the Historical Society. It gave us a wonderful background to the area from it's inception to well beyond. The preserved buildings are priceless. The costumed guides in the garden of The Cannonball House really helped make history come alive. Great walking town with a wealth of history. A shout out to Marcos who helped facilitate our visit.
Highly recommend!

The museum was small but comprehensive and packed with fascinating information. The staff was knowledgeable and answered a number of questions. In particular, the docent at the Cannonball house provided a wealth of information and stayed well beyond the closing time to answer questions for us. He was in period dress (First Fridays in Lewes) and was so friendly and knowledgeable it made for a great afternoon. If you enjoy history I highly recommend.

Lots of history in Lewes Delaware, and this is one of the best exhibits to see!

First, this is located in the Cannonball House located on Front Street. There's a $5 donation per person for self guided tour. You're greeted by a historian in period dress who gives you an overview of the town's history and the exhibits. Although the house appears small, they've packed a lot of history and exhibits in each room. Each room is dedicated to a specific part of history --defending the town during the 1812 war; the fishing industry; wireless transmitter; building the breakwater; and pilots role to safely pilot boats up the Delaware Bay and River to ports of Wilmington and Philadelphia.

Lewes DE Historical Society has done an exceptional job bringing their maritime history back to life. Architecture from the colonial and Victorian periods dot the landscape. Our guide, Bob, did a fabulous job conveying his knowledge on our tour. Some buildings are closed due to COVID but some are open. Finish the day at Nectar cafe and shopping.

Even if you are only a summer vacation visitor you need to sign up for their news releases. It might give you more reasons to come to Lewes, a charming gem of a town. The many programs of the Historical Society are both interesting and entertaining. While I like the small village with its displays, they also have on-going lecture series, special events in the park and, of course, a friendly staff to suggest local programs and sites you may want to enjoy while you are here.
