Groundbreaking Set For Kalmar Nyckel Center

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell is joining in celebrating a groundbreaking for a new Kalmar Nyckel education center and shipyard project in Wilmington.
    
Officials who are gathering Tuesday evening along the Christina River in southeast Wilmington say the new center will allow the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation to double the number of students who can participate in educational programs.
    
The foundation is a volunteer-based organization that owns and operates the Kalmar Nyckel, a replica of a 17th-century tall sailing ship that brought settlers from Sweden to the Delaware Valley.
    
The $4.5 million, 18,000 square-foot education center will be part of the historic tour that currently includes Old Swedes Church and Fort Christina.
