Storied Connection between the
United Kingdom and United States
A Symbol of Transatlantic Goodwill
In 1914, a British Peace Centenary Committee purchased Sulgrave Manor through a public subscription, marking 100 years of peace between Great Britain and the United States following the signing of the Treaty of Ghent ending the War of 1812. To this day, Sulgrave Manor continues to serve as a memorial to anglo-american friendship.
