About The Curriculum Support Team

Integrating Delaware County’s History into the classroom experience is the goal of the Curriculum Support team.  There are a variety of ways to experience this history: with a tour, a visit, a presentation or experience, or a Society volunteer visiting the school.  We are here to supplement the curriculum to include information about Delaware’s rich cultural past.

About Program Fees

The Delaware County Historical Society is a non-profit organization funded by donations and memberships. In order to keep our facilities such as the Nash House, The Meeker Homestead, and the Cryder Research Center open and programs available, we would appreciate any financial contribution your school, PTO, or organization can provide.

For the Underground Railroad Experience and the Early Settlers and American Indians of Delaware County programs we ask for $5.00 per student. For all other programs we suggest a fee or donation of $50.00 for small groups(up to 50 people), or $100.00 for larger groups.

These fees are negotiable so that all children and interested adult groups can receive the benefit of our programs.


We thank the Delaware County Foundation, the William Street United Methodist Church Foundation, and Delaware County Commissioners for their financial support of these programs.
