Henry and Betsey Delord moved to the house in 1811, and owned and operated a general store called the Red Store right on the property. The house was also the British Headquarters during the Battle of Plattsburgh during the War of 1812.Learn more about the story of the Delord family in Plattsburgh! From an old government debt to the Women's Christian Temperance Union, from inventions to the Medal of Honor from serving in the Civil War, the Delords tell a fascinating story!

Very nice authentic recreation of family and garden life in the 18oo's. Many performances are given throughout the year consisting of mainly local school and local musical groups. Battleground reenactments for the Battle of Plattsburgh during the war of 1812. A nice place to visit.
