Our artifact collection consists of over 6,000 objects related to Delmarva history from the Colonial era through the present day. The collection contains a range of materials from furnishings and artwork to textiles and tools. Some of the highlights of the collection include: military uniforms, medals and other objects that detail local service in WWI and WWII, items from local businesses throughout the years, equipment related to agriculture and working the water, and a large collection of national, regional, and local political campaign ephemera spanning several centuries. 

Each artifact in the collection has its own unique form of identification, known as an accession number, these sequences paired with the organized shelves allows for easier access and trackability. We utilize our artifact collections in our permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as for educational and research purposes.
