In 1976, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in the late 1990s they returned it to its original 1905 appearance. It’s now operated by the Delaware State Parks as a museum, historic site and event venue.

    We absolutely loved this venue. It was the perfect beach wedding setting and I strongly believe you won't find anything like it. Martina was an absolutely delight to work with. Our vendors and guests commented on how helpful and friendly she was. We were thrilled with our choice to go with Indian River Life Saving Station and strongly recommend it.
