Mount Gulian: Three Hundred Years
of History and Almost as Many Reasons

A microcosm of American history, Mount Gulian’s visitors will hear about its role in the Revolutionary War and how General Von Steuben, headquartered here at the end of the war, trained the Continental Army troops to defeat the British. They’ll discover the stories of James F. Brown, a fugitive slave who risked his life for freedom, and of Robert Newlin Verplanck and his involvement in the Civil War as an officer in the US Colored Troops. They’ll learn about the founding of the Society of the Cincinnati, our country’s oldest veterans’ organization, and the history of the generations of Verplanck family members who lived at Mount Gulian.

Mount Gulian members free. Membership is open to the public.
Dinner and Conversation
with Susan B. Anthony
Saturday Evening, June 3
4:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Enjoy a four-course meal with suffragist Susan B. Anthony, finely portrayed by an actress from the American Historical Theatre.
Ms. Anthony joins us this year in commemoration of
the 100th Anniversary of women in New York State winning the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony joined the women’s rights movement in 1852. For the next 40 years, she traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for women’s suffrage. Regrettably, Ms. Anthony died in 1906, never having seen the fruits of her labor. In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving all women the right to vote.
Diners will have the opportunity to meet and interact with this compassionate reformer and activist. Cocktails on the riverside lawn. Candlelight dinner, prepared by Bridgecreek Catering, will be served in our 18th century Dutch barn. Period music, silent and live auctions.
$150 per person. Prepaid reservations by May 19.
