Most of us know that Dewey Beach neighbors Rehoboth in the Cape Region of the Delmarva Peninsula. Fewer people probably know that the coastal town was renamed in honor of Admiral George Dewey's heroism in the Battle of Manila Bay in the Spanish-American War. Today the median listing price for property in the beach town is nearly $500,000. These three homes make half a million dollars look like loose change.
