Join us for our February Event, a "Conversation with Mr. Lincoln" which was first performed in 2014. It was written by our
president, Barbara Slavin, and Mr. Lincoln is played by former film actor and Ocean View resident, Robert Ross.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a change from the originally planned event which was a showing of the movie Iron Jawed Angels.
Additionally, we are also seeking Board Members to join the Historic Village Board of Trustees.
Please click here for details and submit a completed application if interested.
We need your help and support to continue our important mission!
DINE & DONATE
We are fortunate that various local restaurants are very supportive of non-profit organizations in the area. We recently held several Dine & Donate events at The Café on 26 at the end of September and Fins Ale House & Raw Bar in early November. Stay tuned for next year's Dine & Donate fundraisers!
These events make it easy for our neighbors to support us while also patronizing a local business that gives back to the community it serves.
Village members plan to work with the Indian River School District and other groups to arrange educational excursions to the Historic Village in Ocean View.
One of the Village’s primary goals is to provide interactive learning experiences for local residents to create respect for, and interest in, our past.
Our hope is that these educational excursions will foster a deeper appreciation for history among local residents.
The Village strives to find new and interactive ways to “tell the story” of the growth of Ocean View and Baltimore Hundred.
Past lecture topics have included Civil War Delaware, the History of Sussex County, the Genealogy of the Tunnell-West Family, the History of Halls Store, the Maritime Life of the Coastal Towns, the Growth of the Poultry Industry, and others.
Many lectures are recorded and on our YouTube Channel.
We hope to complete the following projects over the next few years:
Contributions to these projects as well as general operations are greatly appreciated. Please donate if you wish to make a contribution. The Historic Village in Ocean View is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (26-1719840) and all contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable under Federal and State and law.
The Historic Village needs the financial help of everyone as we work together to remain viable and preserve the history of our coastal towns area. Pledges for specific projects can also be designated and are deeply appreciated. Please consider donating to our organization.
