Upcoming Events!

On behalf of the Historical Society of Wilmington I would like to thank everyone who helped with making the 5th Annual Quilt & Craft Show such a success! This year the show was dedicated in memory to founder and organizer, Sue Wurzberger.

We had a wonderful turnout of vendors, quilts, and visitors - thank you to the vendors and everyone that brought a quilt to display, there were a record 60+ quilts at the show this year! Thank you to quilt appraiser Sandra Palmer for coming down to the show and appraising quilts.

The raffle was a great success as well. Thank you to all the ladies who helped with the quilt for first place ~ Tessa Atwood, Becky Black, Barbara and Bridget Cole, Linda Derby, Judy Edberg, Kami Golembeski, Joan Henry, Lynn Hughes, Carol Mandracchia and Lyndsay Schacter.  Thank you to Diana Brown for her lovely afghan for second place. Thank you Chapman’s Antiques for providing a gift certificate for third place and Deb Cory for the doll with lovely wardrobe as fourth place.


The show was pulled together with the help of a lot of volunteers, please forgive me if I’ve missed anyone.

New Carriage Shed!

One of our greatest accomplishments for 2014 was the building of our new carriage shed.
This was made possible thanks to all the donors from far away to locals whom supported this
project and for all the fundraisers we have put on over the past couple of years. Thank you to
our House Committee Chairman, Lenny Chapman for his leadership throughout this project
and Travis Wendel from Pioneer Timber Frame for constructing it. We are very excited for the
opportunity to display our large artifacts that have been in storage for so long. They include a
local doctor’s buggy, a sleigh and the old safe from the high school along with many other items
of interest. Once we get some landscaping around the building completed this spring and
displays in place we will hold an open house for all to enjoy.
