About Strong Mansion

The Strong Mansion, Located on Sugarloaf Mountain in Dickerson, Maryland, is owned and operated by Stronghold Incorporated, a private, nonprofit organization founded by Gordon and Louise Strong in 1946. The Strong mansion is located 15 minutes from historic Frederick, Maryland, and one hour form Baltimore, and one hour from both Virginia and DC. The property built in 1912 encompasses 3,000 acres of private land open for public enjoyment.

The amenities of this romantic site include a spacious ballroom, seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, air conditioned bridal suite, and handicap accessibility. Many of the original furnishings grace this beautiful home. The grounds offer three ceremony sites, formal gardens, and tented patio that can accommodate up to 175 guests. This area is surrounded by the natural beauty of the views and forest.

Sugarloaf Mountain was used as a signal station during the Civil War. President Roosevelt made numerous trips to Sugarloaf to enjoy the views and tranquility. Gordon Strong, a native of Chicago, "discovered" the mountain while cycling with a friend and began aquiring the land in "woodlots" in 1903. He and his wife, Louise, made Sugarloaf their home. The mansion was compled in 1915. Mr. Strong believed "...those who appreciate natural beauty will be better people, people who treat each other better."

Our wedding season begins in April and ends in November. Please call 301-869-7846 to schedule a tour of the mansion and grounds.

    Nothing Short of Phenomenal

    We cannot give this venue and the staff enough credit. 5 stars in every category doesn’t come close to the service we were provided. In less than 24 hours, Jessica, and everyone at Strong Mansion, executed the most beautiful wedding celebration. Did I mention that the venue had just had their last wedding of the season the weekend before?

    On Thursday, around 9 am, Jessica was contacted and asked if there was any way to pull off a wedding, Friday (yes the day after the inquiry) at 3 pm. Without hesitation, Jessica and Stronghold Inc, sprung into action. Rehearsal the same day, only 6 hours after they were contacted. In addition, Jessica took our numerous boxes of decorations and told us, they would take care of it. Little did we know that they would take every idea I had thought of and more to create the most beautiful wedding.

    If you’re looking for a venue that truly wants to make YOUR wedding day dreams a reality, kind, friendly and caring staff, Strong Mansion is your venue.

    Best wedding venue ever!

    The staff at Strong Mansion is second to none--they made sure everything ran on time and perfectly smoothly on my wedding day, and were available to help out with anything and everything I needed! I can't recommend them enough. And the venue is gorgeous--we had the fall leaves changing and the tent was nice and cozy. Strong Mansion is the best!

    It is amazing!

    I would get married here over and over again. Everyone talked about the venue days, weeks, and months after! I knew this was our place to start forever! Staff was great and the grounds were kept!
