Take me to the archived exhibition.

Local legends and folklore have historical and cultural significance, and are an intrinsic part of a community’s identity. These stories spark intrigue and curiosity, as well as, provide insight into the past. This exhibition features books that focus on true stories of shipwrecks off the Delaware coast, legends about the Delaware Cape and local lore surrounding the shores of Delaware.

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room from August 1- September 4, 2012.
