 About our Soirees

Every year since 2006, the Nanticoke Historic Preservation has held a gala Fundraiser for the efforts to restore Handsell.  The Soiree is held each year during a different season and always at a historic place in Dorchester County.  The theme of the Soiree is tailored to the location or other seasonal themes.  All the proceeds from the last two Soirees, and all those in the immediate future will benefit the “Handsell Restoration Fund”.

Our Soiree’s in the past have included:

Sarke Plantation circa 1790 was the location of the 2015 Winter Soiree.

    Thanks to, I just discovered that I am a direct Decendent of both Rev. john Henry and Governor John Henry, of Rehobeth and “Weston,” and noticed artwork on the web from artist Margaret Wright Ingersoll, whom I know, having both supported the Historical Society of Moorestown, NJ! It is a small world indeed.
