Our Wedding Day August 4, 2012Our Wedding Day August 4, 2012


I am Hildegard, my husband Charlie, and I started calling Greenwood, Delaware home in October 2013. We realized that we would enjoy sharing our appreciation of Southern Delaware soon after we began exploring the area.


Charlie and I have enjoyed working closely with several local historic and community organizations over the past several years. I became the Executive Director of the Nanticoke Heritage Byway in 2016. The Byway, one of six in Delaware, offers unprecedented opportunities for recreation and relaxation.


This past January, I began writing Tourist at Home, a monthly article in the Cape Gazette extolling the incredible sightseeing opportunities available to residents and visitors alike in Western Sussex County.


As a Delaware Certified Tour Guide, with close relationships with a myriad of community organizations, including Southern Delaware Tourism and Sussex County Historic Preservation, I am able to offer unique opportunities that are unavailable to most people on their own.
