Ground Rentals

Make your special event one for the history books!

The Lewes Historical Society maintains the property to preserve historic buildings, educate the public with tours, and hold events such as the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival and Craft Fairs.  We also invite you to consider the grounds next time you are searching for the perfect venue for your special event.

We offer a unique event setting to corporations, nonprofit groups and individuals. Whether you are hosting a quiet reception for close friends & family, a small family reunion, or hosting an event for your business or organization, our grounds can provide the perfect backdrop. 

***Note: Due to upcoming grounds restorations, we are not accepting any rental requests beyond September 30, 2015.***

"Having spent the morning with friends and family at the famous Lewes farmer’s market, the afternoon enjoying Lewes and the beach, and the evening laughing and celebrating under the stars amongst the beautiful buildings and landscape, The Lewes Historical Society property provided the perfect mix of elegance, ambience and community which made it the perfect place to celebrate life, love, and our wedding." - Rob and Meredith (Forney) Beach
