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. 

    For more information about the exhibit at the Delaware History Museum, or the Challenge program, visit their websites.
