Julia A. Purnell Museum

Over the last 75 years, the Julia A. Purnell Museum has been a tiny, nonprofit museum dedicated to preserving the area’s history. To further educate the general public, we acquire, conserve, and exhibit artefacts of cultural and aesthetic value. The museum’s treasure search and free educational craft activities in July are our primary means of educating the younger generation about the area’s history. FiberFest, a textile festival held in October, includes food vendors, high-quality handmade goods, Delmarva Needle Art Show participants’ artwork, children’s activities, and animals. The event provides several opportunities to learn about textile manufacturing methods before mechanisation. Website
