Newark Historic Buildings Tour

Check back here for guided tour dates in 2019. In the meantime, enjoy the history of dozens of Newark's buildings on this site.

Much of Newark, Delaware's, 300 year history is preserved in its historic buildings. This project created by local historic building researcher Gemma Tierney showcases a selection of local buildings along a 5 mile route through central Newark, optimized for a bicycle tour. Join a guided 2.5 hour bicycle tour, walk or bicycle the route on a self-paced tour at your own leisure, or take a virtual tour from your screen.

Research for this tour was conducted by Gemma Tierney and Jamie Magee. They have also created an interactive map presenting their research on each building.
