Because of the state's small size, Delaware leaders were afraid .the much larger states sur- rounding Delaware would take advantage of it. Others believed that the only way to survive as a small state would be to join in a union with the larger states. In any event, Delaware became the first state to sign the constitu- tion. Delaware Day was first cel- ebrated in 1933. To celebrate the 225th anniver- sary of Delaware's ratification of the U.S. Constitution, Front Street shops and museums will host open houses, a scavenger hunt, light refreshments, special savings and other special activi- ties in each location. The Lewes Historical Society is proud to be a part of the Front Street group, including the soci- ety's Cannonball House Lewes Maritime Museum and the Lewes Life-Saving Station.
