As part of his responsibilities, Hall will oversee the museum’s day-to-day operations, develop and implement educational and interpretive programs, and coordinate community outreach and special events.

Hall has served as a historic-site interpreter for the division since 2011. During his tenure, he played a leading role in developing historical-theater productions and special programs including “The Evolution of Black Recorded Music” series at the Johnson Victrola Museum and the history-meets-creative-fancy plays as part of Dover Comic Con including “The Scorched Pamphlet: Sherlock Holmes Returns to Delaware” and “Caesar Rodney Meets Dr. Who” at The Old State House.

A Connecticut native, Hall has lived in Delaware since he was three years old, graduating from Caesar Rodney High School in 2007 and Wesley College where he received a bachelor’s degree in history in 2011.
