St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is the oldest existing church in the city of Seaford, dating from 1843. The church was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
St. Luke’s graveyard is the resting place of Delaware Governor William Ross and his family. A historical marker for Gov. Ross’ gravesite was erected by the Delaware Public Archives in 2006.
In addition to Governor Ross and his family, others significant to the histories of Seaford, and to the War of 1812, rest in the graveyard.
