A collection of Rehoboth’s small houses and cottages

From north to south, a wide variety of beach life on a smaller scale still exists
September 7, 2020

The demolition of beach cottages, large and small, in Rehoboth Beach has become commonplace over the past decade or so. While technically outside Rehoboth, the recent razing of the Shell House - located on a piece of land close to the city without actually being in it - shows that pretty much no aging structure in the beach community is safe, especially if the property comes up for sale. Land is a valuable thing, and often old structures don’t maximize current building trends. 

This gallery is a collection of small houses and cottages that still line the one-square-mile city’s streets. These aren’t all the small structures in Rehoboth, but they show that if a person looks hard enough, they can be found.
