An Authentic House Museum
The Kent-Delord House Museum, on the shore of Lake Champlain and near the heart of historic downtown Plattsburgh, New York, is this region’s only Historic House museum, is the area’s oldest house in its original form, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is dedicated to bringing 200+ years of American history to life.
The Kent-Delord House Museum is a place to learn about architecture, heritage plants and gardens, traditional crafts and the tools, clothing and collections people used for everyday life in the 1800s and through 1924 when the site was saved as a museum.
The Museum is a place for children, adults, multigenerational families and groups to gather to explore heritage gardens, historic buildings and crafts, preservation programs, hands-on activities, the stories told by re-enactors and costumed role-players, traditional crafts and the changing exhibits that offer hours of fun and discovery. The Museum invites visitors to immerse themselves in the past.
This unique Museum preserves and enlivens a century of war and peace in the same north country neighborhood. Each year the Museum welcomes over 5,000 visitors, members, schoolchildren and volunteers from the U.S. and Canada.
