Mount Gulian Historic Site

Mount Gulian Historic Site

The original house served as the headquarters of Major General Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben during the American Revolutionary War and was the place where the Society of the Cincinnati was founded. The original home was destroyed by a fire in 1931, but was restored in 1975. The history of the museum encompasses the Wappinger Indians to the Verplanck family in its entirety. This site also offers children's educational programs which demonstrate the active history in their lives today.

We hope you enjoy our work.
