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.
On this tour you will visit by lantern light the Presbyterian Church of Dover’s historic cemetery, where many prominent Delawareans and their families are buried. Among them is Delaware’s great statesman John M. Clayton and Revolutionary War hero Colonel John Haslet, who died at the Battle of Princeton in 1777. Meet these figures from Dover history along with Revolutionary War hero Major John Patton, 19th-century Dover’s James Fulton who was the first resident of Rose Cottage, and several 18th-century Dover widows with decided opinions about their husbands! Tour space is limited; please call (302) 739-9194 to reserve your lantern.
Meet at the Johnson Victrola Museum, 375 S. New Street, Dover
