Historic Strickland House

The Duluth Historical Society is located in the Historic Strickland House. The home, dated 1898, was the original home of Alice Strickland, first female mayor of Duluth.

The Strickland House was also the first hospital in Duluth and eventually Alice's grand-daughter, Alice Strickland Ziegler, started the first Gwinnett Humane Society. Now, the museum hosts an annual PetFest at the Chattapoochee Dog Park in Duluth each fall to continue Alice's work and honor our four-legged friends. 

Artifacts, exhibits and pictures tell the history of Duluth from its first inhabitants, the Cherokee Indians, to its founder, Evan Howell. The home sits on 3 acres of wooden land. Guided tours and use of the facility for private events are available. Community garden plots are also available to the public.

The museum is open Fridays and Saturdays, 12 to 3 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children.
