Delaware Historical Society’s Digital Collections Go Live!

February 1, 2022 – One of our most frequently asked questions is how to view Delaware Historical Society (DHS) collections online. Now you can!

Today, our digital collections go live! Search our new digital asset management system (DAMS) from your favorite device wherever you are with access to the internet. Check out what we have digitized. More will be added each month, so continue to come back for updates!

After more than a year of hard work and some help from our friends in the JP Morgan Chase Force for Good program, we’re thrilled to invite you in to explore amazing images and documents from our digital collections, with more to come. We believe in making our collections accessible and open to anyone who wants to use them. This allows us to connect and share resources with you and visitors around the world.

A modern holiday tradition continues with brand-new installations by 10 artists from across the country—all here in one of America’s quaintest historic towns. Why not grab friends or family and make it an evening with festive drinks, local food, firepits, and music?

Explore illuminated holiday displays by artists from New Castle, Wilmington, Philadelphia, San Diego, Hollywood, and Sarasota, then grab a hot drink and follow the winding garden paths to your own fireside table on the grounds of a National Historic Landmark.

Like the generations before us who saw and decorated the Read House through the lens of their own times, the artists and community who come together at LIT for the Holidays help us find new ways of seeing an old house and landscape.
