About the Dutot

Built on land deeded by Antoine Dutot, founder of the borough of Delaware Water Gap (then Dutotsburg) in 1793, the Antoine Dutot Museum and Gallery is housed in the red schoolhouse that served the families of Delaware Water Gap for 99 years, from 1870 to 1969.

After the Stroudsburg School District closed the school, townspeople rallied to save the building for a museum and the school district sold the property to the Borough of Delaware Water Gap for one dollar. A nonprofit corporation was founded by concerned citizens in 1970 and the museum was born.

The Dutot Museum & Gallery in Present Day

For more than 50 years, the Antoine Dutot Museum and Gallery has served the greater Delaware Water Gap area as a center for history and culture of the borough and region, including a museum with hundreds of local artifacts from the borough’s heyday as a top US resort destination, a recreated circa 1920s classroom, and a thriving art gallery spotlighting the many gifted artists of the region.
