History of Betterton
Starting out as a small fishing village and a port for local agriculture, the town was eventually named Betterton after the family of Elizabeth Betterton by her husband, Richard Townsend Turner in 1851. Later, Betterton became a thriving beach resort spurred by the rise of steamboat traffic from Baltimore and Philadelphia which lead to the construction of piers and hotels. Tourism in Betterton was a major economic influence for years to come.
After the great depression and then the construction of the Bay Bridge, Betterton experienced a slow decline in tourist activity which led to a deterioration of many structures. In 1976, Kent County used state funds to purchase the bay front property, cleared out the remaining structures and debris, and rebuilt the beach area as a public park adding a bathhouse, boardwalk, and pavilion.
These improvements led to summer houses being restored, Rigbie Bluff being built. The active year round and weekend lifestyle returned. Many find Betterton and Kent County - a great place to sun, sail and relax - is a swift distance from Baltimore, Pennsylvania, Wilmington, Philadelphia, and points North.
