Greenville & Hockessin Life Summer 2022

Letter from the Editor:

There are many dynamic people who live or work in the Greenville, Hockessin, or Centreville areas.

One of the highlights of this new issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life is writer Richard Gaw’s profile of George Alderman. Throughout his half-century career as one of America’s most successful sports car drivers, Alderman took on the most challenging races and tracks. Now, at the age of 90, the thrill of the competition still remains in his memory.

This issue also features a look at how Anna Biggs is continuing her family’s artistic tradition but with a modern flair. Writer Lisa Fieldman offers a look at the Greenville jewelry designer’s life as she found her own way to express herself creatively while growing up in a family that such an impressive legacy in art.

Writer Ken Mammarella provides readers with an inside look at the new Delaware Museum of Nature and Science.

In May, the old natural history museum reopened following a 17-month and $10.8 million renovation—and visitors are loving the exciting new chapter in the museum’s history. The museum’s major wings focus on Delaware-area and iconic global ecosystems, with exhibits to touch. The museum is a place to explore and learn, with many interactive exhibits.

“We want people to explore,” said Cathy Perrotto, the museum’s public engagement manager.

The Centreville Cafe is an important part of the community, and new owner Elizabeth Moro has plenty of plans for the cafe, which is located just 500 feet away from her brokerage office at Brandywine Fine Properties Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Food is one of the things that connects us. It’s part of our heritage,” she said.

Gene Pisasale, historian, author and lecturer, offers a trip back in time to the beginnings of the automotive industry, focusing on the Stanley Steamer. A hidden gem of a museum near Hockessin tells the story of the Stanley Steamer.

The photo essay subject is the Flint Woods Preserve, a 37-acre canvas of towering oaks, delicate plants and woodland habitat, all under the care of the Delaware Nature Society.

We hope you enjoy the stories and photos in this issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life as much as we enjoyed working on them. We welcome comments and suggestions for future stories. The next issue of the magazine will arrive in the fall of 2022.
