Both children and adults enjoy the First State Heritage Park's candlelit walking tours – there’s history, humor, and sorrow in the stories of real people from Delaware’s past centuries.
Join historical interpreters from the First State Heritage Park dressed in colonial attire as they relate the stories of historic Dover. The Dover’s public square was the site of markets and fairs, suffragists and abolitionists, soldiers and slaves, lawmakers and law breakers. Hear tales of the most infamous resident of Dover’s jail, of devastating fires that threatened the town, of poisonings and tragic love. Tour space is limited; please call (302) 739-9194 to reserve your lantern.
