The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society walking tours will continue at 9 a.m., Wednesday, July 6, starting at the bandstand. Additional tour dates are July 27, Aug. 10 and Aug. 17.

The tour is a 50-minute gentle stroll around downtown. The cost is $10 cash only. Reservations for the walking tours are required at under events. Participants can sign up for tours by date.

Tours provide general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach while touching on several of the storms that have shaped the town’s coastline and beachfront. The guide will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. Topics covered include the indigenous people of the area, the Methodist camp meetings, hotels and railroad service, shipwrecks and Horn’s Pavilion.

Walking tour participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. Restrooms are available at the bandstand area.

Open house sessions at the historic Anna Hazzard Tent House at 17 Christian St. are held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., the same dates as the walking tours. Volunteers will share information about the history of the house and its occupants, and events that occurred in the lifespan of the house. Cookies and lemonade are available and visitors may sit on the porch and enjoy a cool breeze. Reservations are not required for open houses.
