The importance of railroads to America’s economy and way of life, and their impact on Delaware, will be explored during the 20th annual Chautauqua tent show, “All Aboard: Delaware and the Railroad,” that will take place from Sept. 13 to 15, 2018.
Due to anticipated heavy wind and rainfall, the venues have been moved indoors from tents on the grounds of the Zwaanendael Museum and the Lewes History Museum.
With one exception, all programs will now take place at the Margaret H. Rollins Community Center located at 101 Adams Ave., Lewes, Del. Note: Due to a scheduling conflict, the program “Model Railroading Today,” presented by John Hodges, president of the Delaware Seaside Model Railroad Club, will take place from 2:15 to 3 p.m. at the Lewes Public Library, 111 Adams Ave., Lewes. Admission for all programs is free and open to the public. Go to the following for a complete listing of activities. For additional information, call 302-645-1148.
“All Aboard: Delaware and the Railroad” is co-sponsored by the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, the Lewes Historical Society and the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, and is partially funded by a grant from the Delaware Humanities Forum, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
