Please help us preserve our legacy
We believe that Delaware County has an extraordinarily rich history to share. From our earliest inhabitants to pioneer settlers, from farmers to presidents, to those seeking freedom from slavery, Delaware County has a tremendous history to showcase. Your financial help will make this legacy last. We take our education and historic preservation responsibilities seriously because we realize that when it’s gone, it’s gone.
We teach that local history can be fun. We receive dozens of thank you letters from students who tell us things like this: “I thought it was cool that the field trip was fun AND educational!” Or, “I really enjoyed the reenactment! I love how you guys incorporate a mixture of facts but still made it fun.”
The Garth Oberlander Barn, Meeker House and Nash House become living time capsules each time we share Delaware’s history with thousands of school children and adult visitors through programs, exhibits and tours offered there and around the city and county. Good neighbors like you make this work possible. Because of your generosity, we will save these buildings for our children and grandchildren and allow the work of educating future generations to continue.
Take a minute of your time and consider a donation that is meaningful to you.
Your gift will sustain our legacy.
Education is our Heartbeat…
Historic Preservation is our Responsibility
