Join Us

Since 1976, The Seaford Historical Society has worked to Preserve, Protect, and Present our local history through the restoration and opening of the historic Governor Ross Mansion and the operation of the Award-Winning Seaford Museum. In the half-century since it’s founding, the society has depended on members and volunteers to keep our doors open and our facilities maintained. 


Membership in the Seaford Historical Society is a great way to support your community and local history. With options for individuals, families, nonprofits, and businesses; joining the society provides opportunities not available to the general public.

The Seaford Historical Society also has opportunities for Volunteers of all ages and interests. Whether you want to spend a little or a lot of time helping at any of our facilities or events, we have something you can do.

To learn more about how you can help, go to VOLUNTEER.

If you are in middle or high school, you can become a YOUTH VOLUNTEER.


The Seaford Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
