On the first Friday of each month, the Lewes Historical Society opens the doors of the Sussex Tavern, at the Rabbits Ferry House, to celebrate Historic Lewes' First Fridays.  Each month the Tavern comes alive as history interpreters share ales and fascinating tales from the past.

When: 4:00 - 7:00 PM on the First Friday of Each Month
Where: Sussex Tavern at the Rabbits Ferry House - On the Historic Campus, 110 Shipcarpenter Street, Lewes, Delaware 19958

Get a taste of what the Lewes Historical Society has to offer with our First Friday Community Nights!

  • Enjoy live music!
