What’s New


Our benefactor, Ross Claiborne, of the Ross Station name has given the Seaford Historical Society an additional $50,000 matching gift! This money is crucial to the SHS in order to finish and furnish our great new venue! We value ALL of your contributions and support for our Gala (click here for more information) our programs and Ad book; you have enabled us to get to this exciting point. 

Looking for a naming opportunity and a special plaque in memory of, in honor of, or with your name, your family name, please read the clues we have given you below. All contributions will be matched, dollar for dollar! Please phone the SHS office at (302) 628-9828 or email admin@seafordhistoricalsociety.com and we will contact you. 

We are working with a very tight budget for this wonderful building. We still need your help as we work toward the Grand Opening which is now slated to be in late January or early February, barring weather and other contingencies. The builders, Gillis Gilkerson, Inc., are going to build us a wonderful building. GMB, Architects and Engineers, remain with us on the project. We are already taking rentals and asked about use of the building and facilities.

Please phone the SHS office at 302-628-9828 or email admin@seafaordhistoricalsociety.com and we will contact you. Contributions can be made on our website or mailed to: The Seaford Historical Society, 203 High Street, Seaford, DE 19973. THANK YOU!
