Selbyville is a town of approximately 1,600 located in Sussex County, Delaware. It is part of the Seaford Micropolitan Statistical Area. Selbyville was founded in 1778 on a 250-acre tract known as Sandy Branch, which was the site of a gristmill and sawmill. By 1918, the town was a major supplier of strawberries for the entire east coast and agriculture remains a main source of income for the town. Selbyville is billed as the "Gateway to the Beaches." It is only eight miles from the beaches of Fenwick Island on the north side of Route 54 and Ocean City, Maryland on the south side of Route 54. It also boasts a new Railroad Museum that houses artifacts from the early agricultural days to the late 20th century. Selbyville has a peaceful, small town atmosphere, but is also experiencing a growth spurt. The town is presently in the process of building many new homes in four different developments. Other attractions near the town of Selbyville include Cape Henlopen State Park and Delaware Seashore State Park. The nearby town of Seaford offers the Seaford Museum, Ross Plantation and a 200-year-old cable-run ferry that crosses the Nanticoke River and operates sun-up to sundown seven days a week. Fishing, canoeing, hiking, birding and picnicking are available in the area.

Selbyville Weather & Climate

Southern Delaware's weather is greatly moderated by the Atlantic Ocean. The state is the second smallest in the U.S., only 96 miles long and 9 to 35 miles across. Most of it lies within the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the climate transitions between a humid subtropical climate and a continental climate. However, despite its small size, there are significant variations in temperature and amount of snowfall among the state's three counties. Sussex County, which includes the southeastern beach areas, has a somewhat milder climate and a longer growing season than the northern part of the state. Summers are warm with occasional thunderstorms and July is the hottest month of the year. Southeastern Delaware tends to have the highest temperatures and more precipitation than the center of the state, with an average precipitation of 46 inches. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, although August is usually the wettest month. The whole state has mild winters because the mountains of Pennsylvania protect it from cold northwest winds. January, on average, has the coldest temperatures.
