18th Century Life

Five historic houses. Nearly 30 acres of surrounding property, outbuildings, and gardens. An outstanding private collection of household furnishings, fine and decorative arts. And programs and tours that bring this 18th-century enclave to life, all year long. Learn More »


The Board of Directors have announced that the Historic Odessa Foundation just recently acquired the forty-two acre field in front of the Corbit-Sharp House adjacent to the Appoquinimink River. The land was originally acquired by H. Rodney Sharp during his restoration efforts in Historic Odessa in the first half of the 20th-century. 

History Comes Alive! The Historic Odessa Foundation’s school program offers educators a well-documented, interactive and hands-on sampler of 18th century life in colonial Delaware. Although designed specifically with Delaware teachers in mind, our program is broad enough to accommodate school from other states, homeschoolers, youth organizations and summer camps.
