  • – Attention Educators: Fort Delaware Museum of Colonial History is now taking reservations for Student Days.
    Bring your elementary school class and show them the living history of the daily life of The Delaware Company pioneers, the first European settlers in the Upper Delaware River valley from the 1750s through the American Revolution.
    Let them see a working blacksmith, candle maker, spinners and weavers, cabin keepers, 18th century gardener and schoolmarm. Plus, there will be "Blasts from the Past" on authentic muskets and a 2-pound swivel cannon.
    If a picture is worth a thousand words, a living picture is worth still more.
    Available dates are: May 21, 22, 23; May 29, 30; June 4, 5, 6; and June 11, 12, 13.
    Students are still $3 each, while chaperones are one free with each 10 paying students. Additional chaperones are $5 each.
    Plan to allow a minimum of 2.5-3 hours at the Fort for an in-depth experience of local and Early American history.
    Amenities include a gift shop, modern restrooms, picnic pavilion and ample bus parking.
    For more information, or to reserve your field trip, call 845-807-0261, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
    Fort Delaware Museum of Colonial History is located along the New York State Scenic Byway at 6615 State Route 97 in Narrowsburg.
