Milton Historical Society Speaker Series

Milton Historical Society 2013 Speaker Series Begins January 18 Join us Friday, January 18 at 7:00 pm at the Milton Historical Society’s Lydia Black Cannon Museum to learn about The Delaware History Trail with Russ McCabe.

A Milton resident and retired Delaware State Archivist, Mr. McCabe was responsible for selecting the 50 sites that make up the Delaware History Trail. The trail is intended to serve as a starting point for residents and visitors alike to explore and learn about our state’s heritage and culture. Delaware is rich with natural and historical treasure. The Delaware History Trail tells a compelling story about our state and its people. Mr. McCabe’s presentation will include an entertaining discussion of the sites and their significance including the important impact of historic sites on local economies. Images from Landmarks and Legacies, a book of photographs by Kevin Fleming of Delaware’s most historic places that was published in June, 2012, will illustrate the presentation. A limited quantity of books will be available for sale after the presentation. The cost is $25.

Future talks will be held on Friday, February 22 and Friday, March 22, 2013. The Lydia B. Cannon Museum is located at 210 Union St. in Milton, DE. These events are open to the public and are free. For further information, contact the museum at 302-684-1010 or visit
