Fort Ethan Allen Museum
Officers Row, also known as Dalton Drive, faces the Parade Grounds and the view of the Green Mountains. It served as housing for officers and their families, with duplexes for most of the families, and single family houses for the post commander, chief surgeon and head veterinarian. Officers Row was also home to the Officers Club, an Administration Building and a unit for unmarried officers. Across the street were the Parade grounds and Bandstand where, Polo Games, Baseball and other events occurred.
the 1960’s when the general Services
Administration sold off the buildings at the Fort, Officers Row was
the University of Vermont and used as faculty and student housing for
20 years. Then the
University sold it
and it was converted into condominiums for residential housing. The restoration was
beautifully done and for
the most part Officers Row looks very much as it did one hundred years
What was built to house two officers and their families is in several
housing for 5 families and a current look at the real estate listings
values of these condominiums in the $184,000.00 area. This makes what
$15,000.00 and $17,000.00 to
build in 1894,
now valued at more like $920,000.00.
