The History of Rosedale Beach

Join us at 2 p.m. for an informative program led by Tamara Burks, a historian who has done years of research on this important aspect of Delaware's African-American history.

Rosedale Beach was a resort and hotel which was in operation from the early 1900s to the 1970s in Millsboro, Delaware. Owned and operated by an African-American family exclusively for African-Americans, the resort once featured a hotel, boardwalk, dance hall, picnic area, beach area and some of the best entertainment anywhere in the nation at the time including: Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, Jackie Wilson, and Stevie Wonder.
