Based in Wilmington, the Delaware Historical Society (DHS) preserves the history of the state through exhibits, online offerings, a lecture series, and a wide range of other activities. On the left-hand side of the homepage, visitors will find over a dozen sections, including Education, Museums, Publications, and What's New! First-time visitors may wish to click on over to the Featured Exhibit area. Here they can learn about some of DHS's fine museum projects, like a recent exhibit on the history of the Girl Scouts in the state. One particularly helpful area is the Delaware History Online area. Here visitors can make their way through a online encyclopedia that includes DelaWhen? and DelaWhere? and offers some basic nuts and bolts information about the state's history, geography, and people. Finally, the site has a Ask Caesar section which is the online catalog for the Society. Here visitors can do a bit of research on the items in the Society's collection, and also view select items.
