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 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."

Please visit the Strong Mansion page on our website www.sugarloafmd.com for further information. Our wedding season begins in April and ends in November. Please call 301-869-7846 to schedule a tour of the mansion and grounds.

    Beautiful, unique and affordable venue!

    Strong Mansion is a beautiful and unique place. They only have one wedding a day, and the amount of time spent there can be adjusted based on your budget. All the staff that work there helped us plan our day to the letter. They answered all our questions in a timely manner leading up to our day, made sure our vendors did everything they were supposed to do the day of, and helped us clean up at the end of the night. We loved getting married at Strong Mansion, and our guests enjoyed their time there as well, everyone gushed about how beautiful it was! We cannot recommend Strong Mansion enough!

    Strong Mansion was the perfect venue for our October wedding. It's a gorgeous place with so much history and beauty, and the office staff were delightful.

    During the planning, Chris was helpful, friendly and always available to answer any questions that we had about timing, vendors, or anything else involved in planning a wedding at Strong. On the day of, Amy worked seamlessly with our day of coordinator, photographer, and other vendors to give us an absolutely perfect day. The rain held out just long enough for all of our guests to make it from the ceremony space around the pond inside the house, and the ballroom was the perfect venue for our cocktail hour. We were able to add our own little decorations and personal touches, but the Mansion is so beautiful and so well maintained it was almost unnecessary.

    We would recommend Strong Mansion as a wedding venue to any couple who's looking for a serene, outdoor wedding in the Maryland area.

    Strong Mansion provided us the perfect setting for the wedding that we imagined. Both of us wanted an outdoor setting that was classy and offered natural beauty. Strong is absolutely that setting. Couldn't have loved it more.
