There are many fine organizations serving as community heritage-keepers, all over Delmarva.  The organizations collect, preserve, and interpret the narratives of earlier times and share those stories with patrons.  As you travel through our many fine old communities this summer, stop and visit a few of these places to learn about the past.

Last summer I was in Milford, Delaware to give a talk so I stopped by the local historical society to tour its exhibits.  They have excellent collections, interesting exhibits, and many publications related to the past in the town on the Kent and Sussex county borders.   Check them in the next time you are down that way.

Here are some photos I snapped during my brief visit to the Historical Society.
