Cemeteries can open an important window into our culture. The Lewes Historical Society has conducted a systematic survey of cemeteries and historic burial sites in Lewes & Rehoboth Hundred, Sussex County, Delaware. Lewes & Rehoboth Hundred is roughly bordered by Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Old Mill Creek to the north and west, Love Creek and Rehoboth Bay to the south and artificial divisions comprising the far western border of the Hundred.
Stones in our survey range in date from 1707 to 1950. Funding for the survey and partial funding of this database was made possible by grants from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Delaware Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs.
