But Wait! There’s More! Check out this exciting new option!
Club Member Tom Tantillo is a docent at the Fort Miles Museum in Cape Henlopen State Park, in Lewes. He has offered to lead those who are interested on a tour of the fort after lunch!
The central features of the museum include Battery 519, six barracks buildings, a fire control tower, an orientation building, and the Fort Miles Artillery Park. The museum tells the story of Fort Miles, a key piece of our nation's coastal defense, from World War II through the early 1970’s.
The tour would last about an hour, and there would be an additional cost of $10 for out of state cars to enter the park, plus $5 for the tour. Again, this is an option as an after lunch activity.
Have a look at their website, and we hope that you decide to join us! https://www.destateparks.com/FortMiles
