For more than a half a century, The Friends of the John Dickinson Mansion have provided support to the State of Delaware’s efforts to preserve and main- tain the boyhood home of John Dickin- son, “The Penman of the Revolution”. The house was built by Dickinson’s fa- ther, Samuel in 1740 and remained in the family until the 20th century when it passed through a series of owners. In 1952, the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of Dela- ware purchased the Mansion and gave it to the State. Realizing the amount of work that would be involved in restoring the house, members of the Colonial Dames organized the Friends to lend con- tinuing support to the restoration effort.
