About the Book

Lewes, Delaware is a delightful fishing village nestled along the east cost of Sussex County. Nicknamed “The First Town in the First State,” its origins date back to circa 1631. Through the centuries, many people have contributed to its culture and have worked diligently to preserve its beauty, charm, and history. Along the way, they have provided a very family-friendly community with lots of eateries, shops, and places of interest. Written in a poetic narrative, this book explores the riches of the historic town of Lewes. Using both words and pictures, readers are taken on a tour of the community’s elegance and splendor, feeling the excitement of the activities of the canal, the comfort of the beach, and the exquisiteness created by Lewes in Bloom. They will also experience the history of Lewes through the Lewes Historical Society, Fort Miles, the Lightship Overfalls, and the Zwaanendael Museum. They will hear dogs playing at Lewes Unleashed and enjoy the sights and smells of the historic Lewes Farmers Market. Finally, they will take a trip across the Delaware Bay on the Cape May - Lewes Ferry.
