Pencader Heritage Museum

Do you know what this tool was used for?

This is just one of many obscure tools housed at the Pencader Heritage Museum, a small institution that collects all things related to the rich history of the Pencader Hundred area of Delaware. The museum, which opened in 2007, is located in a renovated barn built in 1865 on a field where the Battle of Cooch’s Bridge was fought in 1777.

I highly recommend you make the trip to see memorabilia of the Cooch family, Revolutionary War items, Native American artifacts and a myriad of old maps and documents.

The Pencader Heritage Museum is located at 2029 Sunset Lake Road, in the Cooch Dayett Mills Complex. ( Route 72,  just south of Old Baltimore Pike )
