We are excited to participate in a cemetery project started by the Lewes Historical Society. We will be conducting a systematic survey of cemeteries and historic burial sites in Milton and the Broadkill Hundred in Sussex County, Delaware. To do this project, we need your help! If you are interested in being part of this exciting research project, E-mail the Director, Allison Schell, here or call the museum at 302-684-1010.

Funding for the survey and partial funding of this database was made possible by grants from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Delaware Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs. - See more at: www.historiclewes.org
