Each event offers participants the opportunity to partake in historical conversations, based on a given time in Delaware’s First Town history. This popular show is sponsored by the Lewes Historical Society and takes place in one of their atmospheric, historic buildings, often by candlelight. This interactive interpretation will not disappoint! Reservations are required, space is limited, and you must be 21 years of age to attend.


This event has been rescheduled to Spring 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The well-being of our valued visitors and staff remains our highest priority. This event is not conducive to maintaining proper social distance. LHS strives to comply with the most recent state regulations and therefore our various programs and events are subject to change and cancellation.
