Milford, Delaware, USA

While you are visiting Slaughter Beach, here are some options nearby:

Slaughter Beach-



From the Slaughter Beach town website:

Slaughter Beach was founded in 1681 and incorporated in 1931. How Slaughter Beach got its name has been debated over the years. Early maps show a small creek named Slaughter Creek, which flowed through the marsh from the Cedar Creek south and emptied into the Delaware Bay just north of Prime Hook Beach. Just to the southwest of the town is an area called “Slaughter Neck”. Neck was/is a term used to describe upland areas between two key boundary areas. Another theory is the first postmaster for this locality had the last name of Slaughter.
The naming of Slaughter Beach has two more colorful stories. In the spring and early summer horseshoe crabs come ashore to spawn. Wave action flips the crabs over where they are left to die in the hot sun, thus the “Slaughter of the Crabs.” The most colorful story has to be of Indians attacking early settlers in the area. Upon hearing the news, the leader of the settlers arranged a meeting on the beach with the Indian Chief so the settlers “God” could “speak” to the Indians and make peace. The leader had the Indians gather around their “God”, a cannon, and fired the cannon killing all the Indians – thus the “Slaughter of the Indians.”
Like the naming of Slaughter Beach, the town has gone through many changes. Slaughter Beach in the early years was primarily a resort for Milford area residents during the summer months. In its hey-day, Slaughter Beach had a dance hall, hotels and a boardwalk. With the advance of the automobile and road systems, more and more people started traveling to the Rehoboth area and Slaughter Beach turned into a sleepy little seasonal fishing village. Present day Slaughter Beach has a full time population of 198 people with a much higher summertime population. Slaughter Beach also has become much more of a year-round community for part time residents looking to escape for brief periods from the “real world.”


The following was posted by Debi on Eat Sleep Travel Repeat. It is an excellent overview of Slaughter Beach.

I know the name sounds scary. But the beach is beautiful. The town, and beach, was founded in 1681. There is a lot of talk over how Slaughter beach truly got its name. Some old maps show a small creek named, Slaughter Creek, which flowed from through the marsh of Cedar Creek south and emptied into the Delaware bay just north of Prime Hook Beach. There is also a town called “Slaughter Neck”, Neck being a term that is used to describe upland areas between two key boundary areas. There is another theory is the first postmaster, whose last name was Slaughter, and the town was named for his locality.
There are 2 more colorful stories about how Slaughter Beach got its name. The most unsettling story of the beach’s name has to be of the Indians attacking early settlers in the area. When the leader of the settlers heard of the attack, the leader of the settlers arranged a meeting with the Indian Chief so the settlers’ “God” could “speak” to the Indians and there could be peace. So as the Indians gathered around a cannon, the Settlers’ “God”, the settlers fired the cannon and killed all of the Native Americans. It was the “Slaughter of the Indians.”

Most likely, or I would like to believe, the name of the town came from the horseshoe crabs. Every Spring and early Summer, the horseshoe crabs come ashore to spawn. The waves often flip the crabs over, leaving them stranded. The crabs then die in the hot sun. And it is the “Slaughter of the Crabs” Now Slaughter Beach is A Horseshoe Crab Sanctuary and A Certified Wildlife Habitat Community.
SEASONAL ITEMS OF INTEREST: (FROM THE VISITOR INFORMATION OF SLAUGHTER BEACH)
•April/May: Baby Diamondback Terrapin Hatchlings have been emerging and moving from bay side to the marsh. Keep an eye out as they cross the road. If you find one move it to the marsh side of the road.
•May/June/July: Female Diamondback Terrapins will start nesting activity in the coming months. The females will leave the marsh and start looking for sandy areas to nest in. This means a dangerous crossing of Bay Ave. Please keep an eye out for them. If you find and move it, please make sure you send her in the direction she was going.
•April/May/June: Shore Birds are returning. Please disturb them as little as possible, they have come a great distance to feed and fatten up before flying north to nest.
•May/June/July/August: Horseshoe Crabs will be returning usually starting in May and lingering through August. The heaviest concentration is usually in late May through June. If you see one flipped on its back, just roll turn it over. Never pick it up by the tail and if you find a tagged one, please do not remove the tag and report the information following the directions on the tag. Volunteers are needed for the spawning survey, if your are interested see Bill or Rose at the S.B. Mini Mart.
•September/October: Fall migration of the Shore Birds and Monarch Butterflies.
Present day Slaughter Beach has a full time population of 198 people with a much higher summertime population. Slaughter Beach also has become much more of a year-round community for part time residents looking to escape for brief periods from the “real world.”

Farmers Market- Every Saturday morning from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
This year marks the 22nd season of the Farmers’ Market in Milford.

It has now evolved into an affair that not only preserves the small town feel of Milford but also promotes downtown Milford as a center for economic activity. The market began on Saturday, May 6 and will run through October 7 this year.

In addition to market favorites including Mule Run Meats, Water Girl Farm and Dolce, the committee also welcomed a few new vendors this year. So far four new vendor applications have been accepted which will offer soaps, canned foods and produce. The 2017 Riverwalk Farmers’ Market season in downtown Milford is here and will run through October 7, from 9am to 1pm every Saturday.

Milton-

Milton Delaware was first settled in 1672 by English colonists. Located at the head of the Broadkill River, it provided access to both forests and the Delaware Bay – which spawned a thriving shipbuilding industry. It was known by various names until 1807 when it was named for the English poet John Milton. This prosperous merchant community Milton was home to four governors through the years.
Milton is located about fifteen miles from the popular Atlantic Ocean resort of Rehoboth Beach. Its population of approximately 2,700 persons is diverse – with a mixture of retirees from large East Coast cities and many young and middle-aged families with deep roots in Sussex County.
The town features a historic district, downtown shopping and a riverside park where concerts and festivals are held throughout the year. Its largest manufacturer, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, attracts many tourists and aficionados of interesting ales.
Citizen volunteers makes Milton a vibrant community. Fire and Ambulance services are provided by the volunteers of the Milton Fire Department. The Milton Garden Club proves many hours of service to keep the downtown, parks and Governor’s Walk beautiful throughout the year. The Milton Historical Society and its Lydia Black Cannon Museum are an integral part of the community, too. There are civic and veteran’s organizations, churches of several faiths and numerous Town Council committees through which Milton’s citizens come together to form the fabric known as our community.
