The Rehoboth Beach Museum, 511 Rehoboth Ave., will celebrate the opening of its new, expanded facilities with a presentation by Mike Morgan, “Treasures of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society: Images of the Past,” set for 7 p.m. Sept. 13.
The program will delve into the various pictorial items the society has collected.
A regular museum lecturer, Morgan’s love of history focuses on the Delaware Coast, and he has done in-depth research on Rehoboth Beach history.
“The Rehoboth Historical Society has a truly outstanding collection of pictorial material that covers the length and breadth of the history of the premiere resort on the Delaware Coast,” said Morgan. “During the past several years, the Rehoboth Historical society has amassed an outstanding collection of photographs, newspapers and other illustrative items that depict the history of Delaware’s oldest seaside resort. Every time I research the archives of the Rehoboth Historical Society, I discover a new gem…‘Treasures of the Rehoboth Historical Society: Images of the Past’ will feature photos of trains, boardwalk, beach and battering storms. Some of these images have been widely reproduced and others have been rarely seen before.”
