Welcome to Independence

Independence opened in Fall 2007 in the Long Neck area of Delaware, just minutes from the inland bays, ocean beaches, and attractions of both Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. Tucked into the quintessential rural hometown of Millsboro, DE, the beautiful community of Independence offers a truly luxurious Active Adult Lifestyle—from spectacular new homes to absolutely amazing amenities, the offerings of Independence are truly impressive. And its ideal back-bay location between Rehoboth Beach and The Quiet Resorts of Bethany and Fenwick place it just a skip, hop, and a jump from the historic towns of Lewes and Milton.
