Rehoboth Beach Historical Society Commemorates Founding of Camp Meeting Association

Rehoboth Beach, DE - The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society will collaborate with local congregations to mark the 150th Anniversary of the establishment of the Camp Meeting Association. The event will take place in the pavilion in Grove Park at 3 p.m. on January 27, 2023. This event marks the beginning of a yearlong commemoration of the Sesquicentennial of the founding of the Camp Meeting Association, a precursor to today’s City of Rehoboth Beach.
In 1872, Rev. Robert W. Todd, pastor of St. Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church in Wilmington, Delaware, visited Ocean Grove Camp Meeting on the New Jersey Shore. He soon found himself consumed with the idea of creating a similar Christian seaside resort on the Delmarva Peninsula. He began to look for suitable property near Rehoboth Bay and ultimately arranged for the purchase of five lots of land totaling 414 acres from five farmers including John Marsh, Lorenzo Dow Martin, and a free Black man named Elijah Burton.
On January 27, 1873, “The Rehoboth Camp Meeting Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church” was incorporated by the Delaware legislature in what is now known as Rehoboth Beach. The Association was established with the purpose of “maintaining a permanent Camp-Meeting ground and Christian Sea-side Resort.” The grounds were laid out in a fan-shaped design with wide streets, parks, and lots. The Tabernacle area was placed at the entrance to the grounds, across Rehoboth Avenue from the Rehoboth Beach Museum. After the railroad was extended from Lewes in 1878 and Rehoboth became more secular, the camp meetings were discontinued in 1881. Over time, churches of different denominations were ultimately located within the Rehoboth Beach city limits. In March 1891, Delaware’s General Assembly established a municipality for the territory of the grounds called Cape Henlopen City. In 1893 it was renamed “Rehoboth.”
Rev. Todd chose the name “Rehoboth Beach” because it “locates” the place…on the Sea Coast…near the marvelous Rehoboth Bay in Delaware.” Roger Truitt, who impersonates Rev. Todd in 1870s dress for the Historical Society notes that the name “Rehoboth” was scriptural, referring to the account in Genesis in which Isaac found a broad fertile plain with a productive well in the Valley of Gerar, settled his tribe there and named it Rehoboth, which in Hebrew means “a broad place with room for all.”
In the spirit of the event, all are welcome to attend the ceremony in Grove Park and enjoy coffee, tea and cookies at the museum afterward. There is no fee, but reservations are respectfully requested. Please go to www.rehobothbeachmuseum.org  and click on the events tab to register. Please call (302) 227-7310 with questions. The museum is located at 511 Rehoboth Avenue, next to Grove Park.

An old friend finds a new home
The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and City of Rehoboth Beach are excited to announce the return of the beloved Dolle’s sign to the community. The sign has been installed on the western side of the Rehoboth Beach History Museum at 511 Rehoboth Avenue.
“The Dolle’s sign has been a Rehoboth Beach icon for decades,” says Mayor Stan Mills. “And while change may be inevitable, it will be wonderful to have an old, familiar friend welcoming people as they enter Rehoboth Beach. I’m so pleased that the Rehoboth Beach History Museum stepped up to preserve this rather large piece of Rehoboth-cana and has found a highly visible, distinctive way to display the sign.”

“The Dolle’s sign is an iconic symbol of Rehoboth Beach,” says Nancy Alexander, director of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum. “The historical society is grateful to Tom Ibach for donating it to the society, and we are grateful to the City of Rehoboth Beach for cooperating with us in having the sign mounted on the museum building.

“The Dolle’s sign represents many happy memories for people who visit the city,” she adds. “Whether it is their first visit or one of many over the years, the sign is a symbol to so many people that vacation has begun.”

More than 250 donors contributed more than $35,000 to help bring the sign to the museum.

Rehoboth Beach recognized again as a Tree City USA
For the 31st time, Rehoboth Beach has earned recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA. Also, the city has once again received the foundation’s Growth Award for continuous improvement to its urban forestry program.

“These national recognitions from the Arbor Day Foundation are perennial in Rehoboth Beach, but that doesn’t mean that we take them – or our trees – for granted,” said Arborist Liz Lingo in a prepared statement. “The city’s commitment to tree canopy preservation, maintenance and planting are critical to safeguarding Rehoboth’s wooded seaside character, which is so highly valued by our residents and visitors.”

Rehoboth is one of 3,600 communities across the country that qualify for Tree City USA designation by meeting four program requirements: having a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. The Growth Award recognizes communities that demonstrate year-over-year increasing levels of tree care and community engagement.

Pay-by-Phone-Parking
   A system for pay-by-phone parking is in Rehoboth Beach. Drivers are able to pay for parking with a credit card by dialing a phone number or using a smart-phone application. This new system replaces the credit card system. This does not eliminate the ability to pay for parking with quarters. For more information about pay-by-phone parking, visit www.parkmobile.com.
