The Indian River Lifesaving Station Museum is a maritime museum in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It features the historic Indian River Lifesaving Station.
Built in 1876 to help deal with the alarming amount of shipwreck along the coastline, the Indian River Lifesaving Station Museum was initially used by the United States Lifesaving Service. It was originally located 400 feet closer to the shore, but sand dunes formed immediately around the structure, so it was moved in 1877 to its current location.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Indian River Lifesaving Station Museum provides visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of the US Life-Saving Service, which is the predecessor of today?s US Coast Guard.
Considered as the oldest lifesaving station that is still in its original location in all of East Coast, the Indian River Life Saving Station Museum is a great place to learn about the country?s maritime history.
