The Delaware Agricultural Museum Association was founded in the late 1970’s by a group of Delaware farmers and business people dedicated to preserving First State agricultural history and heritage.
Situated in a 38,000 square foot building, the Delaware Agricultural Museum houses a collection of over 4,000 artifacts featured in a variety of interesting exhibits. Among the many highlights are:
• The Birth of the “Broiler” Industry - Cecile Steele’s 16' x 16' chicken house (ca.1923).
This structure was added to the National
Register of Historic Places in 1974
• Swedish design log cabin (ca. 1750) fully restored
• Displays of antique farm machinery, equipment
and tools without equal on the east coast
• 1941 Stearman bi-plane
• Nationally recognized Jehu Camper folk art collection
The museum's village - Loockerman Landing - illustrates daily life in rural Delaware in the late nineteenth century. All of the following historic structures are open to the public:
• Silver Lake Mill • Loockerman Landing Train Station • Mill Lane School
• Reed General Store • Gourley Barbershop • St. Thomas Church
• Carney Farmhouse
• Johnson & Son Blacksmith & Wheelwright Shop
The objects and artifacts on display in these beautifully preserved buildings tell the story of growth and change in Delaware's rural communities.
