Delaware's 23rd annual Chautauqua, “The I’s Have It: Industry, Innovation, and Invention,” Sept. 9–12, 2021 More Info
Welcome to the official blog of Delaware’s Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs. This inaugural post is a special milestone in the division’s current “Point and Click” initiative, which aims to make the division and its holdings more accessible to the public.

In other words, “It is my pleasure to introduce to you the Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs.” State agency we may be, we are also a team of individuals deeply committed to “Saving Delaware History” and using it to carry Delaware’s story forward for future generations.

This is also a good opportunity to point out some other great things that are happening outside of our division. Here are some other state blogs that you can check out in order to keep your finger on the pulse of the Delaware’s past and present:
I look forward to watching this initiative unfold as we continue to build connections within our public and professional communities by “Blogging Delaware History.”
Check back soon!
