Distilled from content published in the division’s blog, social media, webpage and press releases, the newsletter is designed to stimulate public interest in the division’s museums, programs and services, and to increase awareness of the value that history and historic preservation bring to the lives of Delaware’s citizens and visitors. The newsletter is distributed during the last week of each month, via e-mail, to division staff members, Delaware’s historical- and preservation-related communities and friends.

Individuals interested in being added to, or removed from, the newsletter mailing list, should e-mail the editor at the following:
