May Museum Meet-Up

Museum Meet Up (Eventbrite) - May (Seaford) (1).png

Join museum folks from across the state for an evening of networking and conversation at the Governor Ross Mansion on Thursday, May 2nd, hosted by the Seaford Historical Society.

The Governor Ross Mansion and its outbuildings are both architecturally and historically significant. Completed in 1860, not long after our youngest governor completed his single term in Dover, the home is a unique example of Italianate design, while the adjacent slave quarter is one of the few surviving in the state. The Seaford Historical Society's work to restore and stabilize the structures has been ongoing for decades, but the availability of Community Redevelopment Grant funds has allowed for significant work in the years following the pandemic. Thanks to help from experts like historical architect Barton Ross, historical landscape designer Joya Parsons, and famed interior designer Mark Showell (owner of Merry Sherwood Mansion in Berlin, MD), the home is now a true showpiece that is not to be missed!

All DMA events are free for current members. Non-members are always welcome, for just a small fee. To become a member, see our website ( for instructions.
