Cultural Communities: Stories from South Delaware

Cultural Communities: Stories from South Delaware

3rd thru 11th Graders

Cultural Communities South Delaware - Watson Walker Jr.

This interactive program takes your class on a tour of Delaware’s south ward.  Mr. Walker visits your class in advance to inspire the students with stories of the area. Students research Delaware’s early black settlers and then present their findings while touring the area.


Mr. Walker visits your classroom to talk with students. After students complete their essays, Mr. Walker returns and walks the class through the south Delaware neighborhood.

Length of time:

One hour in your classroom. The walk is about 60 minutes. As students will be presenting their research as they tour, the timing will vary. Mr. Walker can adapt his presentation to fit your schedule. 


We suggest a fee or donation of $50.00 for small groups (up to 50 people), or $100.00 for larger groups.
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.
These fees are negotiable so that all children and interested adult groups can receive the benefit of our programs.
