It’s now operated by the Delaware State Parks as a museum, historic site and event venue.

    The perfect day

    The Indian River Life Saving Station was everything we could have asked for and more for our wedding venue. Martina was great to work with throughout the planning process and took such good care of us the day of the wedding. The beach ceremony was breathtaking and having the museum as the backdrop to our reception was picture perfect. IRLSS allowed us to have the exact day we wanted, and we couldn’t be happier.
