Delaware History Museum
Occupying much of the 500 block of Market Street, the Delaware Historical Society’s History Center complex is composed of three distinct pieces. Built in 1798-1800, Wilmington’s Old Town Hall was the center of the city’s political and social life for much of the 19th century. The nearby Delaware History Museum features a rotating display of exhibits highlighting the history of the state and its people. Cross the street and you can stroll the courtyard of Willingtown Square, which consists of six relocated historic houses and the Society’s outstanding Delaware history research facility.
