Admire the imaginative artwork created by the talented Advanced Placement Art Students of Middletown High School.  The Historic Odessa Foundation is proud to showcase the student’s artwork at the Visitor's Center Gallery from April 13 through April 29, 2018. 

H. Rodney Sharp collected maps and displayed them in his home, “Gibraltar”, in Wilmington. His particular interest focused on North America and the mid-Atlantic region, and many of these maps were acquired by reference to 18th century William Corbit inventories for display in the National Historic Landmark Corbit-Sharp house restored by Mr. Sharp.
