The Education Department of the Seaford Historical Society has tours of the Ross Mansion grounds and the Seaford Museum to meet Delaware State Standards. The Education Department also sponsors a Youth Volunteer Program which begins in fifth grade. Youth are trained and serve as docents during special events, participate in Victorian related weaving and cooking activities, help maintain a positive appearance at the Ross Mansion, and more.

We invite you to investigate our Online Archive featuring local newspapers dating back to 1879 and Seaford High School Yearbooks from 1927 through 1988. We also have several Videos of local interest available online. Both resources are free, though donations are appreciated.

The Seaford Museum houses a library and research room with books, newspapers, and other printed material related to the history of our town. We have valuable resources for genealogy, local industry, and biography. 

Library and records access is by appointment only. Please call 302-629-9828 or email  to make arrangements. The use of the library is free, but donations are appreciated.
