Ethan Allen Homestead Museum
Last updated on April 19, 2016


The museum brings to life the legacy of Ethan Allen: a revolutionary hero, a Vermont founder, a philosopher, and a subsistence farmer. It also explores the ideas, people, and land-use practices that have shaped Vermont’s modern culture and environment.

We serve over 5,000 school children annually with hands-on history lessons about the settlement of early Vermont. By providing interactive activities and guided tours, the museum educates visitors on how the present is a product of the past and how culture and nature are intertwined. The museum and homestead, open May through October, seven days a week, from 10am until 4pm, sit on a bluff overlooking the intervale, and are part of the Winooski Valley Park District.
