The Seaford Historical Society owns and operates the Governor Ross Plantation and the Seaford Museum, two of the best little museums in the area. The Gov. Ross Mansion, ca. 1859, is a fully furnished brick Italianate home. Enjoy the gracious Victorian rooms, picturesque Plantation grounds, historic outbuildings including the only documented Delaware slave quarter, and gift shop. The Seaford Museum is located in the historic former post office (ca. 1935), in the heart of Downtown Seaford. Exhibits highlight local area history from prehistory to the present day. Rotating exhibits feature exciting new stories, and both guided and self-guided tours are available. Come explore a Museum with big-city quality and small-town charm.
