The Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village is offering opportunities to ensure the life-long preservation of its historic buildings that document Delaware’s rich agricultural and rural heritage. These buildings are vintage 19th century structures that range from the inspirational St. Thomas Methodist Episcopal Church originally located in Shortly, Delaware to the Woodside Train Station once visited by President Woodrow Wilson. Other buildings spread throughout the beautifully landscaped village are the fully-stocked Reed General Store, the still active Johnson Blacksmith and Wheelwright Shop, the cozy Carney Farmhouse with its operational country kitchen, and the Mill Lane School House that showcases the simple but effective education offered children of 19th century Delaware.
While each of these buildings serve as a present-day nostalgic reminder of a less-complicated past, you can help us ensure that they are preserved so that future generations can celebrate Delaware’s past as well as appreciate the challenges and pleasures of rural life as represented in our 1890’s village. Your financial support will ensure that the epic story of our Delaware forebearers resonates today and into the future with all who visit our magnificent museum and village.
