HISTORICAL COMMISSION OFFERS GUIDE BOOK TO

EARLY REHOBOTH HISTORIC SITES

The Rehoboth Historic Commission has released an updated guidebook to 26 early Rehoboth historic sites throughout town identified by description roadside signs.  The first guide was published in 1995 under the direction of the late Frank DeMattos.  The new edition includes a memoriam to commission member and local historian E. Otis Dyer, Jr. who was working on the revision when he passed away last year.  The historic commission hopes that “documenting these sites will increase public awareness and appreciation of Rehoboth’s historic past.” Hard copy guides are available at the town office, Blanding Library and Carpenter Museum. An online version can be found on the town website.
