Dewey Beach Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

IMG_9892In 1868, “Rehoboth City” first appeared on a map of Lewes Rehoboth Hundred in Beer’s Atlas of Delaware. It is believed that the name was changed to Dewey Beach following the 1898 Battle of Manila (Spanish American War) when Admiral George Dewey became a national hero. The Rehoboth Beach Life-Saving Station (RBLSS), located at the end of Dagsworthy Street, was commissioned in 1878. It was became the Rehoboth Beach Coast Guard Station (RBCGS) in 1915. In 1921 citizens objected to the closing of the station, and it was re-commissioned in 1926. The station was decommissioned in 1937 and abandoned in 1946. The original structure was moved to Lewes and became a residence. A replica of the station was built in 1988 which stands today. Incorporated in 1981, the town lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay, is about one mile long and two blocks wide. Despite its small size and low year-round population of about 300, it is not uncommon for 30,000 to descend upon the town during summer weekends. Numerous bars and restaurants line Coastal Highway (Delaware Route 1), the town’s main street. The town hosts the Dewey Beach Music Conference during the last weekend of September. This event began in 2002 and has been a huge draw for unsigned bands from all over the country. Another popular Dewey Beach event, which occurs every Columbus Day weekend in October, is Greyhounds Reach the Beach, where thousands of rescued greyhounds and their owners congregate. Also, the town is the location of the annual East Coast Skimboarding Championships, in mid-August.
