Indulge on Friday evenings for The Lewes Historical Society’s History Happy Hours including interesting dialog led by local history buffs, heritage area experts, and museum professionals.

History Happy Hours take place on Friday evenings from June through August beginning at 4:00pm, in the downstairs meeting room of the Hotel Rodney at the corner of Second and Market Streets.
These events are free, but due to the program’s popularity, a pass per person is required for admission. Seating is limited. Passes are available at the Ryves Holt House at the corner of Second and Mulberry Streets beginning at 3:00pm (an hour in advance) on lecture days.
