Cottage & Town Awards

Presented by Rehoboth Beach Main Street 

This program is a celebration of preservation and renovation in downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE.

This program follows the tradition founded by a group of local citizens with an interest in preserving the charm of downtown Rehoboth Beach. In 2005 those citizens passed the torch to Rehoboth Beach Main Street, a non-profit organization affiliated with the National Trust for Historic Preservation with the mandate of keeping downtown Rehoboth Beach economically strong and architecturally unique.

The program recognizes residential and commercial property owners who contribute to the charm, beauty and ambiance of Rehoboth Beach through preservation/restoration, new construction and landscaping. The aim is to celebrate and thank those who make significant contributions to our community.

There are five award categories:

  1. Residential Preservation
  2. Residential New Construction
  3. Residential Renovation
  4. Landscape Renovation/New Plantings
  5. Commercial Preservation/Renovation/New Construction/Facade Treatment

The nominator may, but need not, own the property nominated or be the property’s primary contractor.
