Ethan Allen Homestead
The Ethan Allen Homestead was the home of Ethan Allen, was born in Vermont 1738 and lived there until his death in 1789. He was well-read and articulate for this time and place. However, he gained recognition for leading his troop, the Green Mountain Boys, in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga. The fort was at a strategic location on Lake Champlain and was held by a garrison of around 50 British soldiers at the start of the American Revolution. The British soldiers were unaware that fighting had erupted in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts when Ethan Allen and his troop attacked. Later during the Revolution, Ethan Allen was captured by the British and held prisoner in England until he was exchanged for a British officer in 1778. His house is small, but you can gain an understanding of daily life in the late 1700's. It is located at 1 Ethan Allen Homestead and is open daily from 10 AM to 4 PM.
