Join Guides in Colonial Garb as They Tell True Stories and Tales of Historic Dover by Lantern Light.

imageVisit by candlelight, the historic churchyard of Christ Episcopal Church.

From Caesar Rodney’s unrequited love to Civil War opponents buried within yards of one another, be prepared for a surprise or two on this unique tour. Both children and adults enjoy the First State Heritage Park's candlelit walking tours – there’s history, humor, and sorrow in the stories of real people from Delaware’s past centuries. Meet at the Christ Episcopal Church at Water & S. State Streets, Dover. Space is limited; call 302.739.9194 for reservations. Lantern tours cancelled due to inclement weather will not be rescheduled. $10 per person
