The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society resumed its schedule of walking tours, held at 9 a.m. every other Thursday beginning at the bandstand.
Upcoming tours are set for May 24, June 21 and July 12 and 26. Attendees should look for the pink umbrella held by tour guide Jean Brolund or the black umbrella held by tour guide Gerry Beaulieu. The tour is a two-hour stroll around downtown.
This year, the society will also hold the occasional evening strolls June 7 and Sept. 6.
Tours provide general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach while touching on the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town. The tour guide will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. Topics covered are the native peoples of the area, the Methodist Camp meetings, hotels and railroad service and Horn’s Pavilion.
Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimack, the Severn and the SS Thomas Tracy; the railroad; the Belhaven Hotel; restaurants such as the Robert Lee and Snyder’s; and Funland.
The cost of the tour is $10. Reservations are required to the Rehoboth Beach Museum, 227-7310.
