The DCHA Galleries
DCHA features two exhibit galleries.
A new exhibit entitled Delaware County History Highlights was installed in the summer of 2017. This exhibit explores some of the larger topics in the history of Delaware County including the Anti-Rent War, Railroads, Industry, Wars, Reservoirs and Tourism.
Also on display in the Main Gallery is a semi-permanent exhibit: "This Valley used to be all Farms..." A Celebration of Delaware County's Agricultural Traditions.
The Elijah Thomas Gallery hosts a variety of exhibits throughout the year.
Drawing the Line: Maps of Delaware County is currently on display.
This exhibit displays a sampling of DCHA's historic map collection from c.1800 through the 1960s. Also on display are some surveyor's tools.
Maps are powerful and engaging forms of visual communication. They show us our world, and the myriad smaller places within it. Maps fulfill a multitude of functions, and are used for a variety of purposes. Political maps, railroad maps, geological survey maps, waterway maps; maps are irresistible and invaluable resources for learning about our environment.
