Red Clay Valley Talk Series.....New Castle County Workhouse

On January  5th, 2015 three local history buffs, Ray Harrington, Tom Sears and Bill Salerno gave an overview/history of the once New Castle County Workhouse when it stood along Greenbank Road in the Prices Corner area. It was the first of a series of three talks being presented by the The Red Clay Valley History Talk Series. As stated on their Facebook page , These talks are a community outreach project of Historic Red Clay Valley Inc. The talks will cover many interesting topics related to the Red Clay Valley. It was held in a room at the new Wilmington and Western Railroad administration offices in Marshallton, De. The talk was well done and nicely attended with a rough count of about 40-50 folks interested in the facility that once stood in the Red Clay Valley.
