The view above is seen as you enter the grounds, with the house and gift shop on your left and the buildings which house Mr. Marvel's vast collections straight ahead.
Update: in August 2016 I was back at the museum and took a new batch of photos that you can see here on my Facebook page. Update #2: video slideshow of the museum is now on YouTube.
There are many historic buildings on the museum grounds that Mr. Nutter Marvel acquired and then moved to the location. A church, one room school house dating from 1833 and magnificent barns are all present to walk through and admire. The barns house the carriages which he collected, featuring such pieces as a Disney carriage, wagons and delivery vehicles of all kinds. Below is the building which is now home to the Georgetown Historical Society.
This church, originally in the area of Gumboro/Millsboro, was moved here in the 1960's and is still used today.
The only Confederate monument in the state of Delaware
This facility is ALSO home to the Delaware Telephone Museum (there's going to be a separate post about that). The Georgetown Historical Society is located at:
510 S Bedford Street
Georgetown, Delaware 19947.
Visit their website at http://www.marvelmuseum.com and find them on Facebook. If you are looking for a cool and different wedding venue they hold them there and I think that would be an amazing place for photos. Here is a link to a photographer who did the pictures for this recent wedding.
