Delaware's Industrial Heritage

to support programs showcasing Delaware's industrial past by partnering with historical societies, research centers, and public and private archival organizations to produce films, public brochures, host symposia, and print catalogues. The goal is to produce a body of rich contemporary materials that will be used by the academic community and engage the general public.

With funding thru the We The People program, the Delaware Humanities Forum will be the convenor among Delaware's historical societies and Delaware's academic institutions to develop a series of public programs showcasing Delaware's industrial heritage. Organizations such as the Society for Industrial Archeology , the University of Delaware's Museum Studies Program and its Center for Historic Architecture and Design, the Delaware Historical Society, and the Center for Material Culture will join forces to look at labor history, agricultural history and environmental history and historic preservation in small industrial towns that dot the state.
