About DelaWARES

DelaWARES is an interactive website and digital humanities project that explores the material culture of Delaware to engage anyone interested in the history and culture of the First State. Developed and curated by the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture with support from the University of Delaware and the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, DelaWARES is a continually evolving hub for publicly facing research and scholarship dealing with how the people of Delaware relate to the things they make, own, build, or use.
