All Aboard: A history of the Junction and Breakwater Railroad
Recently, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) has been engaged in a project to convert the former Junction and Breakwater Railroad corridor into a multi-use path for both pedestrians and cyclists. In compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act, DelDOT completed an evaluation of the railroad and found that it demonstrated both local and regional significance, playing an important part in the development of local towns such as Nassau, Lewes, and Rehoboth. This presentation will explore the history of the Junction and Breakwater Railroad, including its relationship to local agriculture, Fort Miles, and tourism to Delaware’s Beaches in the late 19th and early-20th centuries.
