Ryves Holt House (1665) is purportedly the oldest surviving house in the U.S. state of Delaware.

The building, which has been dated to 1665 using dendrochronology, served as one of the earliest inns in the region. It was run for a time by Philip Russell, who was "recorded as a cupbearer to William Penn". After coming to "Port Lewes" in 1721, Ryves Holt, the first Chief Justice of Sussex County, purchased the house. The Lewes Historical Society currently owns and operates the building and the Historical Society hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets and further information are available at the nearby Rabbits Ferry House.
