“Pleasant Surprises”

Lewes Historical Society
Reviewed 12 October 2012

The LHS was holding its annual crafts fair on Columbus Day weekend (along with the Lewes "Boast the Coast" day events such as sidewalk sales and food vending. The Irish Eyes crabcake sliders were outstanding.) The fair was centered around several historic buildings. The fair and the preserved/restored houses were a treat. Visit the Cannonball House too. The first city in the first state is a great place to visit.

All the service woman wanted to do was help an old lady book a zillion tours and sell figurines :( she kept busy and was disinterested in helping us! Totally blew off our questions of what to do in the area. I would suggest just walking around and searching for yourself.

A most informative tour of the historic district led by a member of the historical society. Air conditioned trolley...it's not big so reservations are recommended.

Great little historic colonial house(I believe the original part 1665), which houses the historical society. Very engaging staff.

On a recent stroll through downtown Lewes one saturday morning my wife and I stopped into the Lewes Historical Society museum and were greeted by a enthusiastic young lady who then proceeded to give us a private, 45 minute tour of the museum house and it's history, along with the history of Lewes itself. We had a genuinely enjoyable time and walked out smiling about our new home. The whole arrangement, which includes an area of town designated a Historic District was a peaceful, relaxing respite and we were happy for our choice.
