Ocean View and the neighboring communities of Millville, Clarkesville, Bayard, Muddy Neck and Cedar Neck, all part of Baltimore Hundred, make up coastal Delaware between the Indian River Bay and the Assawoman Bay. These villages have grown from small hamlets of subsistence farmers and seafarers into vibrant coastal communities. This part of Delaware is not only a wonderful place to live but also has a rich and interesting history.
The Ocean View Historical Society is seeking to preserve and share the rich history of these coastal towns through planned workshops, speakers, a quarterly newsletter and an exhibit in the old Ocean View Town Hall. A museum of rotating exhibits also has been proposed where everyone can participate in programs regarding the history of these coastal towns.
