The Pencader Heritage Area Association collects, documents, and preserves the physical and oral culture of the area known as the Pencader Hundred in New Castle County, Delaware. We have established a museum containing information pertaining to a wide range of interests: military artifacts from the Revolutionary War through the modern era; Cooch Family papers, artifacts and photographs; early settlers; Pencaderís rural culture; Native American items; local maps; genealogical research materials on long-time local families; Chrysler Corp, and much more.

Located in the old dairy barn at 2029 Sunset Lake Road, just south of the intersection of Old Baltimore Pike and Route 72, Newark, this handicapped accessible museum and its events are always FREE and there is plenty of off-street parking.

We are open 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month and other times by appointment. Contact us through the website or call 302-737-5792 for additional information.

See the partial list of resources which may interest you and your family. We especially delight in helping students. Our video collection is available for viewing at the museum.

Thanks for your interest.
