Ethan Allen Homestead Museum

1 Ethan Allen Homestead
Burlington, VT 05406

802-865 4556

Flamboyant frontiersman, daring military leader, land speculator, suspected traitor, prisoner of war, philosopher and writer of Reason the Only Oracle of Man. Ethan Allen was all of these, and more. He dominates early Vermont history, from the Green Mountain Boys and the capture of Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point - to the very shape of the state as it gained independence.

Only a short drive from downtown Burlington, the Homestead offers hands-on history, spectacular scenery, and riverside picnic areas and walks. The Homestead provides a genuine slice of 18th century life, and an intimate look at Vermont's most colorful - and controversial founder.

The Homestead was Ethan Allen's last home. The site commands rolling fields and scenic curves of the Winooski (Onion) River.

The farmhouse, historic gardens, descriptive exhibits and multi-media show reveal the man, the myths and a true measure of his place in Vermont history.
