Built in 1876, the Indian River Life-Saving Station is one of few life-saving facilities on the Atlantic Coast that still stands in its original location. The building served as a Coast Guard station from 1915 to 1962, when it was damaged by a severe storm and was decommissioned. In the 1990s, the Delaware Seashore Preservation Foundation began work to preserve the building as a museum, restoring it to its 1905 appearance and adding an impressive gift shop. Since 2004, it has been in the hands of Delaware State Parks, who conduct daily tours of the museum and host programs out of the station site. The site is also available for private functions such as weddings. For more information, please call or visit the station website.
galler1THE LEWES HISTORICAL SOCIETY, 110 Shipcarpenter Street, Lewes
302-645-7670, www.historiclewes.org.
The Lewes Historical Society began in 1961 as local residents identified a need to preserve Lewes' architectural heritage and for an organization to act as a steward for Lewes' past - a history that stretches back to humble Dutch origins in 1631. The Society has been recognized as one of Delaware's greatest assets and has been honored for our efforts by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and by the American Association for State & Local History. The Society celebrates the heritage of Lewes -- "The First Town in The First State!"
THE LIGHTSHIP OVERFALLS, Pilottown Road (On Canal Front), Lewes
The Lewes Historical Society accepted from the U. S. Coast Guard in 1973 one of the last lightships which functioned on the East Coast. It stood for years off Boston and upon being brought to Lewes was rechristened Overfalls for the lightships which from 1892 to 1961 marked the entrance to the Delaware Bay. The ship's move to Lewes, its preparation for a museum role, and its relocation to a permanent berth made available by the city in 1975, have all been major undertakings overseen by the Lewes Historical Society and later by the Overfalls Maritime Museum Foundation (OMMF). OMMF is now working to preserve and restore the ship so this national treasure (one of only 17 surviving lightships of a U.S. fleet that at one time numbered 179) will be available for future generations. More info available at www.overfalls.org
