Delaware Valley’s New Sweden Colony was settled in 1638. This first, multi-cultural colony included Lenape, Swedes, Finns, Dutch, Africans and others. Today, this Centre functions as a museum without walls and its mission is to bring the Delaware Valley's earliest Colonial History alive to thousands of school children, citizens and visitors through hands on learning, interactive displays and programs; to develop the region's largest living history program representing the diversity of the people of the Delaware Valley, with interpreters representing Native Americans and New Sweden colonists, including "Anthony" the first African settler. Visits by appointment only. Please call for details.
