Historic tent house to open for visitors June 16

June 8, 2021

The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society will host a series of open houses at the historic Anna Hazzard Tent House.

A portion of this historic structure dates back to 1895. It was the original home of Methodist minister Rev. R.H. Adams during the time of the Methodist Camp Meetings.

Once owned by Anna Hazzard, the first female licensed realtor in Delaware, the home was later donated to the city by its last owners, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald James. The house was moved from its site on Baltimore Avenue to its current location at 17 Christian St. in 1975.

Visitors are next welcome between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., Wednesday, June 16. No reservations are required. There will be lemonade and cookies offered, and visitors can learn more about Anna Hazzard and the camp meeting era in Rehoboth Beach from the society’s volunteers.
