From the Executive Director

To protect the health and well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and community, we are following the guidance of local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At the direction of Delaware Governor John Carney, Old Swedes Historic Site is temporarily closed.

All public events and programs, including the new pop-up tour/exhibit, are postponed.

Keep in touch with us by viewing our informative posts on Facebook and Instagram and check out our Old Swedes From Home page on our website!

As you can imagine, a portion of our revenue comes from tours, gift shop sales, events, and programs that is now disrupted. We are grateful for your membership dues and contributions, which will help to sustain us. We look forward to seeing you when we reopen; please keep checking our website for updates.
