The Col. David Hall Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution owns and maintains the historic Thomas Maull House on Pilottown Road in Lewes.
The chapter’s goal is to preserve the home and property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The vision is to have the house and grounds serve as a museum for the community to enjoy.
Engraved bricks are available to purchase for $100 each to create the first phase of a memorial walkway which will move the house closer to being handicap accessible. As planned, the walkway will memorialize loved ones, ancestors and patriots. The deadline to order is Friday, April 30.
With the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution approaching, the brick pathway will highlight patriots of colonial times and include service members from any military conflict.
Community members or organizations may choose to be recognized as a Friend of the DAR. Each donor brick has Friend engraved on the first line, and the second or third line may designate the name of an individual or organization.
If there is room, a military logo may be selected from the provided clip art.
For donors who wish to remain anonymous, the chapter will engrave the name of a patriot from the American Revolution.
The walkway will serve as a spot to reflect on those who have served their communities. For complete details and to order, go to brickmarkersusa.com/donors/cdhc.html or call 302-381-0207.
Ordering a brick helps raise funds for the chapter’s historic preservation mission.
