Hidden Lives at First State Heritage Park

People of color have been an integral part of the Dover community across more than 300 years of history. Although their lives were tightly woven into the fabric of Dover's every day and their contributions meaningfully shaped this city, their experiences have only too rarely been included in the Dover story as they deserve to be. This February, we invite members of our community to join us as we share these hidden lives unveiled by our ongoing research, sharing deeply human stories of love and loss, hard work, painful setbacks, and triumphs against adversity. Meet a historic interpreter at the John Bell House (43 The Green) for this FREE 45-minute walking tour. This walking tour will be featured every Friday and Saturday for the entire month of February during the John Bell House’s operating hours. Tours will take place on the hour from 10 AM to 3 PM.

Hidden Lives at First State Heritage Park

People of color have been an integral part of the Dover community across more than 300 years of history. Although their lives were tightly woven into the fabric of Dover's every day and their contributions meaningfully shaped this city, their experiences have only too rarely been included in the Dover story as they deserve to be. This February, we invite members of our community to join us as we share these hidden lives unveiled by our ongoing research, sharing deeply human stories of love and loss, hard work, painful setbacks, and triumphs against adversity. Meet a historic interpreter at the John Bell House (43 The Green) for this FREE 45-minute walking tour. This walking tour will be featured every Friday and Saturday for the entire month of February during the John Bell House’s operating hours. Tours will take place on the hour from 10 AM to 3 PM.
