Delmarva Settlers

About is a collaborative project. Funding is provided by a Fair Play grant, and this site represents a cooperative effort between the History Department of Salisbury University, the Salisbury University Foundation, and the Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture.

The purpose of the Fair Play grant is to undertake student research using original records to examine the settlement and development of society on the Delmarva Peninsula. Working with primary sources and constructing these profiles have helped students develop analytical and interpretive skills, hone writing ability, and make a significant contribution to Delmarva history.
