The Lewes Historical Society wishes to thank the Lingo family for a highly generous donation of $125,000. Because of this donation, the Society has been able to meet its fundraising goals for the development of the Lewes History Museum, an educational center that features first-class exhibits, the Children’s Discovery Center, and a special collections gallery. To recognize the Lingo family’s continuing generosity, the Society has named the museum’s temporary exhibit space “The Jack & Peggy Lingo Gallery.”
Founded in 1962, the Lewes Historical Society has contributed much to the preservation of Lewes’s local architecture, culture, and history. The Society’s upcoming exhibit, “17 Men: Portraits of Black Civil War Soldiers”, will open on February 12, 2021. This exhibit will celebrate the research and art of Michigan-based medical illustrator Shayne Davidson.
Because of its deep roots in Lewes, the Lingo family possesses a singular appreciation for the rich cultural history of the area and is proud to continuously support the work of the Lewes Historical Society. Learn more about the Society by visiting www.historiclewes.org or calling (302) 645-7670.
