A noticeable building along the historical walking tour of Port Penn. This two room Port Penn schoolhouse now serves as a museum for those who visit Port Penn, Delaware. Built in 1886 for the purpose of educating eight grades of children in the community until 1961.
Shortly after it closed it was converted into a bait shop before reopening in 1975. Reopening as the Port Penn museum you can venture in and learn about the community and surrounding wildlife. It sets on Market Street directly across the street from an empty lot. In the early 1900’s you would have seen the W.B. & J.S. Zacheis, Inc. Cannery in that lot.
