Division welcomes two new historic-site interpreters

The Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs has recently added two new historic-site interpreters to its museums’ staff. Historic-site interpreters are the agency’s front-line connection with the public, adding a human face to Delaware history. Through tours and special programming, they provide in-depth information about the state’s historic places and help bring the people and events of the past to life.

Jenna Atkinson brings a wide variety of skills to her work at the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes. A 2020 graduate of Hofstra University where she earned bachelor’s degrees in both drama and creative writing with a minor in radio, television, video and film, the longtime Magnolia, Del. resident will be a great asset to the museum in the development and production of virtual programming, historical drama, videos and other public activities. A history devotee, she looks forward to sharing Delaware’s heritage with museum visitors.
