First State Heritage Park Lantern Tours return

DOVER (March 22, 2012) - Historical interpreters from the First State Heritage Park dressed in colonial attire will relate the stories of historic Dover on Friday, April 6 at 8 p.m. The Dover Green was the site of markets and fairs, suffragists and abolitionists, soldiers and slaves, lawmakers and law breakers. Visitors will hear tales of the most infamous resident of Dover’s jail, of devastating fires that threatened the town, of poisonings and tragic love.

There’s no better way to experience history than by the light of a lantern. Admission to all lantern tours is $5. Space is limited; lanterns may be reserved by calling 302-739-9194. Lantern tours cancelled due to inclement weather will not be rescheduled.

Information about this and other programs is available at 302-739-9194.  The First State Heritage Park can be found online at .

The First State Heritage Park at Dover is Delaware’s first urban “park without boundaries” linking historic and cultural sites in the city that has been the seat of state government since 1777.

The park is a partnership of state agencies, under the leadership of Delaware State Parks, working in collaboration with city and county government, nonprofit organizations and the private sector. name, title, phone; or Beth Shockley, Public Affairs, 302-739-9902
