Videos produced by the Lewes Historical Society are a service of the Society's staff and volunteers to help bring us closer to the community and our community closer to its history.
We will be posting new videos alternating between Meet the Past and Lewes Legends & Landmarks. Meet the Past will highlight real Lewes residents and participants of the 1913 bombardment and blockade of Lewes, while Legends and Landmarks will discuss prominent Lewes sites and accompanying stories.
