As part of our mission to share Newark's history, the Newark Historical Society participates in various community events throughout the year. In addition, we are proud to sponsor special educational events for our members and local history buffs. Our two signature events are the Founders' Day Celebration and the Annual Membership Meeting.

Co-sponsored by the Newark Parks & Recreation Department, our traditional walking tours typically focus on old buildings and the ever changing landscape of Newark. This fall, Dr. Jim Jones will show you where Newark’s “bodies are buried”, focusing on the historic people of Newark who may be still be lurking our Newark streets. Join us for a one hour, family friendly (but spooky) tour of some of the places you might want to avoid on foggy nights when the moon is full. Tours will begin on Main Street in front of Old College on Oct. 19, Oct. 22, Oct. 26, and Oct. 29. All tours are the same. All routes are ADA accessible and cover approximately 0.5 miles. This event is rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Pre-registration and fee payment is required for this event, $5 for Newark residents, $8 for non-residents. secure.rec1.com/DE/newark-de/catalog
