The building itself had quite a colorful
history after that momentous event. It was a tavern until 1848,
then housed shops, a tenement house, warehouse and more. It even
moved to its present location on Main Street. In 1901, efforts
were first begun to try and preserve the building, and in 1911
the Old Constitution House Association took over the deed and
maintenance duties. The deed was finally transferred to the state
in 1961. Today the Old Constitution House features period rooms,
historical pieces and more.
The House is open May through October, Wednesday to Sunday, 11-5.
The cost of admittance is $2.50 for adults, and free for children
14 and under. Groups are welcome, although they request that you
telephone them at 802-672-3773 prior to visiting.
