to Stronghold on Sugarloaf Mountain
Stronghold, Incorporated is a non-profit corporation,
organized in 1946 by the late Gordon Strong. It owns and operates
the mountain property for the public's "enjoyment and education
in an appreciation of natural beauty."
Sugarloaf Mountain has been designated a Registered Natural Landmark
because of its geological interest and striking beauty. Stronghold
agreed to maintain its natural state, and your help in this regard
will be a most welcome contribution.
Funds for maintenance and improvement do not come from federal,
state, or municipal sources. They come from a modest trust fund,
from membership dues, and from gifts and bequests of folks like
you, who are interested in preserving this priceless heritage.
We wish you a pleasant stay and venture the thought that as you
stand and look out upon the lovely Monocacy Valley and the mountains
beyond, you will experience a moral and spiritual uplift. Gordon
Strong believed that "... those who appreciate natural beauty
will be better people, people who treat each other better."
