The Lewes Historical Society held its Annual Summer Craft Fair at the Historical Complex July 12. This very popular event drew over 2,000 visitors and locals to buy and browse fine crafts from more than 70 artists from throughout Delmarva and the Eastern Shore. Funds from this event will benefit educational and preservation programs at the Lewes Historical Society.
