Things To Do History Field Trips
We’ve got Native American History. We’ve got Agricultural History. We’ve got Maritime and Military History (tons of those!) We’ve got scads of Natural History as just a quick look around will tell you (for instance, did you know that Indian River Bay is actually a drowned river valley?) And of course, there’s Industrial History (Seaford was the birthplace of Dupont Nylon and the now $90 billion broiler chicken industry started right here in a little house in Ocean View...) We’ve got charming seaside and riverside towns each with their own fascinating histories and even some stories that you might not want to listen to after dark. We’ve got war stories. We’ve got pirates and shipwrecks and tales of buried booty. We’ve got a rock that fell from the sky several years and thousands of miles from the volcanic eruption that sent it into orbit. Boy, do we have some stories. And we love telling ‘em. Southern Delaware history is the history of the United States but on a smaller scale, just the perfect size to capture young imaginations.
