Norwich University is the oldest private military college in the country. It has a history that begins in 1819 with Capt. Alden Partridge’s struggle to define and establish a new kind of American educational system.

Norwich’s heritage reflects changes in the life of our country: Military and civilian; academic and cultural.

The Sullivan Museum and History Center welcomes visitors to explore this rich 200-year history in a 21st-century, state-of-the-art facility. Engaging exhibits, artifact displays, audio and visual installations bring the story of Norwich and its alumni to life.

Welcome to the Sullivan Museum and History Center. Here you will find a fascinating combination of 200 years of Norwich University history along with stories from hundreds of individuals who sacrificed for our republic and made contributions to the building of this nation. Our collection reflects the breadth of American and Vermont history, and the unique role of the citizen soldier first established by Capt. Alden Partridge, founder of the American Literary, Scientific and Military Academy that is now Norwich University.
