Become a part of local history this Saturday, Oct. 1, as the Delaware Historical Society debuts the Delaware History Museum and the new Center for African American Heritage! The venues' debuts will be marked by a ceremonial ribbon cutting before the start of a fun-filled block party just outside the museum.

Show up with some friends from ResideBPG to enjoy the food trucks and live music that will fill up North Market Street, then head indoors for a peek at the museum's current exhibition, Delaware: One State, Many Stories. The exhibition will be augmented by educational programming and activities!
