Bethel Real Estate

"Home of the Sailing Ram"

Bethel began as “Lewisville” in 1840.  The historic significance of Bethel is its connection to Delaware's maritime history.  A unique and highly specialized sailing schooner, the "ram," was created in Bethel. It opened up trade to remote and inaccessible areas of the Chesapeake Bay because it required less water depth to navigate.

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy plenty of activities on Bethel’s Broad Creek River, such as fishing, kayaking, boating, and wildlife photography. The Broad Creek River flows to the Nanticoke River, one of the major waterways flowing into the Chesapeake Bay. Nearby state parks and beaches offer even more water sports.
