LDS History

Latter-day Saints arrived in Delaware in 1837. In 1843, converts to the Church were encouraged to gather in Nauvoo, Illinois. Several converts from Europe used the Delaware waterway to Philadelphia to enter the United States. In the early days, Church meetings in Wilmington were held in a rented hall. In 1931, Church missionaries used a local radio station to broadcast gospel messages. Block teaching began in 1941 among some 16 LDS families, meetings began May 4, and the Wilmington branch was organized September 28, 1941. The branch, with 9 adults and 10 children, continued with little growth for the next decade. In 1950, some 63 attended a branch party at the home of the branch president. The Salisbury Branch was organized in 1953. The Dover Branch was organized later that decade. A meetinghouse was completed in 1960.
