Ireland House Museum

Built in 1837, Ireland House was home to one of Burlington’s earliest families. Descendants occupied the house until 1985. The home interprets 3 distinct time periods and showcases a collection that is largely original. Ireland House Museum consists of the family home, cottage and woodlands.  The Museum offers a unique roster of educational programming, volunteer opportunities and facility rentals.
