The Vermont DAR is a service organization open to any woman descended from an individual who aided the American cause for freedom during the American Revolution. Vermont Daughters support the DAR mission by promoting patriotism, preserving American history and securing the future through educational opportunity for children. We welcome inquiries regarding membership.
The Daughters have owned the Strong Mansion and operated it as a Museum since 1934. We are proud to share this historic treasure with all who are interested in the history and culture of the Champlain Valley in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
The family whose hands turned the lock in the massive front door of the Strong Mansion arrived shortly after the French and Indian Wars and witnessed a decisive campaign of the American Revolution and a key battle in the War of 1812. Their lives were intertwined with historic events at Fort Ticonderoga, Crown Point, and the Plattsburgh battle sites, and the founding of the State of Vermont.
Located on Route 17 one mile north of the Champlain Bridge.

An admission charge of $5 for adults, $3 for seniors & students, and $10 for families supports the operation of the Museum.
