Delaware Tech Owens Campus students in the Architectural Engineering Technology program are currently involved in a service learning project with the Ocean View Historical Society.
The project explores various concepts for a proposed Coastal Towns Museum adjacent to John T. West Park in Ocean View. Members of the historical society board and local architects and designers visited the Owens Campus March 12 to review presentations from the AET students. From this review, the students will develop a final group proposal to be presented at the 2nd Annual Collegewide AET Capstone at the Delaware Tech Terry Campus Thursday, May 1.
In addition to their design proposal, the students also measured and documented the restored historic Tunnel/West House (circa 1860) and the town’s historic post office (circa 1899) that was relocated to the site on Central Avenue.
