Delaware’s year-long observance of Preservation50, the 50th anniversary of the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, will come to a close with a celebratory program that will take place on Friday, Oct. 7, 2016 beginning at 5 p.m. at the Painted Stave Distillery, located at 106 W. Commerce St. in Smyrna Del. Sponsored by the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs and Delaware State Parks’ Time Travelers program, “Preservation50 Historic Preservation Celebration: Past, Present and Future” will feature distillery tours, talks by top professionals in the field of historic preservation and a ceremony honoring a Delawarean who led a grassroots effort to make historic preservation more well-known to the public.

Admission to the celebration is free but, due to space restrictions, reservations are required by calling John McCarthy at 302-739-9188 or e-mailing him at john.mccarthy@state.de.us no later than Oct. 5, 2016.
