Did you know Wilmington is the Delaware Valley’s earliest permanent Old-War settlement, beginning in 1638? From then to now, this area has a ton of interesting history. That’s why we’re so excited to hear the Delaware Historical Society will be launching a new exhibit, and it’s so big that it’ll be rolled out in 5 parts between now and May 2020. 

It’s called “Collecting Wilmington: Place, Perspective & Memory” – and features the Historical Society’s recently acquired Paul Preston Davis Collection of Delawareana. Davis is a retired Delmarva Power executive who spent over four decades amassing a vast collection of rare business trade cards, photography, African Americana, rare print materials, and commemorative objects. He donated it to the Historical Society last year.

The roll-out continues over the next 8 months in this order:

  • Rare Books and Print Materials, November 14, 2019
  • Sheet Music, January 14, 2020
  • Watches and Commemorative Objects, March 3, 2020
  • Wilmington Photography,  May 6, 2020
