Tracing History has its Rewards

The Delaware Tourism Office has relaunched the Delaware History Trail and is offering prizes to those who upload their photos of 10 of trail’s 29 locations. Qualified participants will receive a limited-edition, 100-piece Delaware history-themed puzzle to commemorate their time in the state. 

Several new locations have been added to the trail, including the Delaware Agricultural Museum, the tall ship Kalmar Nyckel, Hagley Museum & Library, Milton Historical Society, Nanticoke Indian Museum, Nemours Estate, and Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park. The trail’s experiences emphasize Delaware’s crucial role in the nation’s history, and its rich cultural diversity. 

“For more than a decade now, the Delaware History Trail has provided an exciting way for people from inside and outside the state to get an inspiring look at Delaware’s long, rich story,” said self-professed history buff Governor John Carney. “This is a way to not only hear about the past, but to experience the places where history happened.” 

“These sites were specifically chosen to give travelers an experience they’ll remember,” said Delaware Tourism Director Liz Keller.
