Dine In This Historic Delaware Mansion For An Experience That Takes You Back In Time

Delaware is full of hidden gems, and even those of us who grew up here can be caught off guard when we discover something new. For me, my ‘new’ discovery is actually a few hundred years old, and it’s hiding in plain sight. The stunning Tilton Mansion is home to the elegant University and Whist Club – a normally private dinner club that’s now open to groups of non-members looking for a historic place to enjoy a meal.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Tilton Mansion hosts other events opening the Club to the public, like an Easter brunch, wine tasting nights, and holiday celebrations. You can also rent one of the historic dining rooms or event spaces for weddings and private events. Visit the Tilton Mansion website for more information.
