In 1785, Construction began on a home for Vermont Folk Legend Ethan Allen. Ethan and his family moved into the house in 1787, and lived there until his death in 1789. The home was sold by his heirs in 1814, and remained continously occupied until 1981 when it was restored to it's original state. It is now open as a museum and historic site.
The Allen House is in need of a new roof, and in order to stay true to historical accuracy, we want to use historic materials and methods to do the work.
We are only $3000 short of the matching funds needed to secure a grant to complete the work. Your contribution can make it happen!
