A surprising addition to the National Register of Historic Places was announced late last fall. It is a chicken coop in Georgetown, Delaware, where America’s broiler industry was started in 1923 by the late Mrs. Wilmer Steele. The coop has been restored to its former glory by the Delmarva Poultry Industry Association.
