Speaker Series

Returning this Fall, the Lewes Historical Society is offering educational and entertaining programs that explore the history of Lewes, the surrounding area, Lewes's unique interaction in the national scene and other related and appealing topics. All of these meetings are open to all members, residents and visitors of the Lewes community.

Each presentation will be held at the Community Room of the Margaret H. Rollins Community Center at the Lewes History Museum (unless otherwise indicated). Check back with us each month to see what is planned as we will be hosting different speakers and topics vary. These events are FREE and do not require a reservation.
