The Lewes Historical Society celebrates over 50 years of embracing Lewes history by offering multiple tour options to the public.  Discover historic destinations downtown, learn fun facts about our region’s maritime history, and experience history as it comes alive.  Learn about our lighthouses, cemeteries, historic architecture, maritime monuments, and more.

Guides are passionate historians, and an hour can seem like a few minutes as they talk about local legends and events…American History has never been so fascinating.
