Welcome to the tranquil village of Odessa, in colonial times, a busy grain shipping port known as Cantwell's Bridge. Stroll its tree-lined streets. Tour the beautifully restored 18th and 19th-century houses. Wander through picturesque gardens. Dine at the historic Cantwell's Tavern, welcoming guests just as it did nearly 200 years ago.
Feel free to explore our five buildings, nearly 30 acres of surrounding landscape, outbuildings and gardens. Don't miss an outstanding collection of household furnishings, fine and decorative arts. Many pieces of original family furniture made by prominent Delaware cabinetmakers of the 18th century; the collections include major works of regional paintings, prints, textiles, silver, pewter, and other metals. The Foundation's collection is steeped in Delaware history and rich in the finest examples of mid-Atlantic craftsmanship.
Open March - December; January and February by reservation.
