Located at 318 Garfield Parkway, the Dinker-Irvin Museum offers an immersive experience of an historically significant early 1900’s home and a glimpse of what life was like during the early days of the town. It is one of the few remaining original cottages in Bethany Beach and the oldest public building in town. It served as a U.S. Post Office from 1922-25, was donated to the Town in 2016 and was listed on the United States Registry of Historic Places in 2018.
The current history museum in the Town Hall lobby will remain open Monday through Friday from 8:00 – 4:00 pm.
The Museum at Dinker-Irvin Cottage is one of eight homes and five public properties on the Bethany Beach Heritage Trail, a self-guided walking tour. Brochures are available in Town Hall.
