The Anna Hazzard Museum is a history museum in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It traces the local history of the city of Rehoboth Beach from its founding in 1873.

Originally, the Rehoboth Beach was founded as the Rehoboth Beach Camp Meeting Association by St. Paul?s Methodist Episcopal Church?s Reverend Robert W. Todd. The city was initially created as a site for Methodist camp meetings, following the trend of the religious resorts in New Jersey. Although the association disbanded in 1881, the location was later incorporated as Henlopen City by the Delaware General Assembly, later renamed back to Rehoboth Beach, after the Biblical term used in the Old Testament, which means ?place for all?.

The Anna Hazzard Museum is named after a former civic leader and owner of the original tent houses that date back to the 1870s camp-meeting era.
