Ethan and his younger brother Ira played major roles in Vermont's history. Not just in wartime but also in peaceful times

This was the second Ethan Allen statue we have seen this month. The other, representing the state of Vermont, is displayed in the US Capitol in Washington DC.

Based on an excellent tour given by a guide at the State Capitol Building, this statue is a figment of the sculptor’s imagination since there are no actual images of Ethan Allen’s face! His uniform is interesting and encourages explanation bordering on speculation. An important...More

Positioned at the entrance to the State House, it is an impressive statue. Luckily, during the tour of the building, the guide includes a reference to Ethan Allen and his role in American history.

This statue is located beside the entrance to the State House. It is larger than life and nicely carved. Slow down and take a good look!

As far as statues go, this is a good one. This will be part of your tour of the State Capitol. Kids can run around on the green.

It is a good statue but if you attend the museum you find out that there never was a picture or painting of Ethan Allen so no one knows for sure what he looked like.

A dramatic statue on the steps of the State House. He's a Vermont hero. There is more information about him on the tour.
