Delaware’s railroad history

    The Railroad played a big part in the history of Delaware.  From the growth of industry in Wilmington, to getting Delaware’s peaches, and even seafood to market.  First Experience visits the Delaware History Museum and captures that connection through an exhibit of Delaware’s railroad history.  


    You can find more information about the exhibit and the traveling exhibit by visiting the Delaware Historical Society website.
