Conversations on History "The Golden Age of Rehoboth: The Railroad Era and Beyond"
Paul Lovett has been creating a diorama, of Rehoboth Beach during what he calls the Golden Age: 1890-1910. Last year he was able to bring the initial part of the diorama to the museum to talk about his research. Since that time he has expanded the diorama to include Rehoboth Avenue to the Atlantic Ocean. Since we were unable to have Paul bring the diorama back this year, he created a series of videos about it and the history of Rehoboth Beach. We have been airing these videos on our website and now are pleased to have Paul join us for this Zoom meeting to talk about his research and answer questions about his project and the videos he created.
All his life Paul Lovett has spent time in Rehoboth Beach along the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal near the bridge. He has immersed himself in the history of the city during the late 1800s and early 1900s, a time he calls the Golden Age. His diorama is a result of his study of many reference sources on this important time in Rehoboth Beach's history, and his many interviews with local folks who have ties back to that earlier time.
