Fort Delaware: a new day dawns
For those who have grown up with modern conveniences like running water, electricity and grocery stores, Fort Delaware offers a glimpse into a long-past way of life. But the fort’s future is evolving, too, with an effort underway to form a new Friends of Fort Delaware group to raise awareness and funds to offset the increased costs associated with upgrading costumes and authenticating artifacts.
“It’s expensive to do it right,” Conway said, “but we hope to engage the community’s imagination in the possibilities.” Conway also hopes to increase the opportunity for serious research at Fort Delaware with a series of seminars and conferences.
