The Historic District of Lewes, Delaware features many fine Victorian Homes and houses and commercial buildings dating as far back as the early 1700s. The downtown commercial areas of Pilottown Road (Front Street), and Second Street are all situated inside the historic district.

The Lewes Historic District is bordered on the east by the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. Other boundaries are harder to describe and are easier illustrated than described. This Map of Lewes (paper copies are available at The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group office and also at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce) shows the historic district highlighted in green.

Shipcarpenter Square, which sits in the Historic District and borders Burton's Subdivision is made up of historic homes and re-purposed historic buildings which have been moved to their location from other parts of the state.

The Lewes Historical Society Complex sits adjacent to Shipcarpenter Square on 110 Shipcarpenter Street. The complex features many historic structures from the 18th and early 19th centuries including an old schoolhouse, doctor's office, country store and blacksmith shop. The Lewes Historical Society is the guardian of several other museums inside the Historic District as well, including the Cannonball House and the Lewes Life Saving Station in the Lewes Canalfront Park.

The Historic Lewes Farmer's Market is held on the grounds of the Lewes Historical Society, at their complex on most Saturday mornings from 8 am to noon, Memorial Day weekend through the last weekend in October.

The Zwanandael Museum, perhaps one of Lewes' better known museums, is owned and operated by the State of the Delaware.

The Lewes Canalfront Park, dedicated in 2009, is also part of the historic district. The park features a friendly "seaside theme" playground, tennis courts, ballpark, pier, gazebo and gardens all easy accessible to residents and visitors.
