Nabb hosts An Evening in Old Lewestown

May 4, 2014

The Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury University hosted An Evening in Old Lewestown during the center's annual fundraiser April 26 at the Lewes Historical Society grounds in Lewes.

Named after Dorchester County, Md. attorney, engineer, pilot, philanthropist and avid historian Edward Harwood Nabb, the center's mission is to cultivate and sustain the advancement of scholarly research through collecting, preserving, disseminating and providing access to records and artifacts which illustrate the rich historical and cultural heritage of the greater Delmarva region. The Nabb Center is dedicated to the preservation and study of the unique history and rich heritage of the Delmarva Peninsula.

Each spring, the Nabb Center Board of Directors hosts an event to raise funds and awareness about the center and to showcase a significant historic site in the lower Delmarva region. This year's event returns to Delaware.

Shown touring the Schoolhouse on the Historical Complex are (l-r) Helen Carey; Niel Carey, board member emeritus; and Richard Carter, former board member and chair of the Delaware Heritage Commission.
