During your stay at The Avenue this summer, make a stop at the newest Rehoboth Beach Museum exhibit: Women of Rehoboth Beach. This gallery opened on May 23, 2015 and will be open until March. The exhibit is a tribute to the women of Rehoboth Beach and the roles many of them have played in creating this beautiful and flourishing community! This exciting new exhibit is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of Rehoboth Beach and learn more about its history.
Featured in the exhibit are books written by local authors Anyda Marchant and Muriel Crawforn, paintings by local artists Ethel Leach and Teddie Tubbs, and much more! Former city mayor Miriam Howard, “The Mosquito Lady” Mary Wilson Thompson, founder of Easter Seals Emily Bissell and Anna Hazzard, the first female licensed realtor in the state, are all focused upon in the exhibit.
Throughout the length of this interesting historical exhibit, presentations and events will be held to teach us more about the women of Rehoboth Beach. Lady Spies of the American Revolution will take place on July 23 at noon at the Kings Creek Country Club. This presentation by historian Ken Daigler will explore women’s involvement in spy activities in Philadelphia and the south throughout the Revolutionary War. Tickets are $25 per person and reservations are required. To book your spot to this informative and exciting afternoon event, call Rehoboth Beach Historical Museum at 302-227-7310.
