The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society Mission Statement

The Rehoboth Beach Museum, operated by the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and showcasing for the public the history, culture, architecture and unique character of Rehoboth Beach.


What we do and How we do it

The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society celebrates the founding and history of Rehoboth Beach through the operations of the Rehoboth Beach museum. Founded in 1975, the Society's mission is to preserve and showcase artifacts that illustrate the development of the community. We provide this by having events such as the annual Beach Ball, luncheons, lectures, tours, exhibits and other programs. The exhibits range from vintage postcards and bathing suits to original Civil War era maps and train schedules. The Society operates the Anna Hazzard Tent House and the Rehoboth Beach Museum in the city’s former ice house. We also have an active group of volunteers. Society members receive free museum admission, newsletters, free admission to lectures and other activities and advance notice of ticketed events. Please visit the museum and join us for one of our fun and educational programs. Become a member today!
