            Donate Material

The Center accepts items associated with Delmarva, regardless of the time period.  There is a focus towards collecting items relating to the lower Delmarva region and its hinterland.  A secondary collection focus concerns materials of the greater Chesapeake region.  Tertiary foci of the Center include exploration/first contact and the Colonial era throughout North America. 

However, the Center will not forbear to collect items from other areas which are representative of a type used throughout the Chesapeake or which help to illustrate the general context of the history of Delmarva.
