Exhibits portray Nanticoke Indian life, early agriculture, shipbuilding, the canning industry and much more. Special rotating exhibits are opened on a regular basis. The Historical Society also operates the Governor Ross Mansion and Plantation, the home of the former Governor of Delaware (1851-1855) that has been restored to pre-Civil War elegance.
