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."
