About the site:
Built in 1837, Ireland House was the home of Joseph Ireland, one of Burlington's earliest settlers. In 1820 at the age of 28, he purchased the land that would become the future site of the family home. Joseph and his descendants occupied Ireland House until 1985. Ireland House Museum is a local treasure that consists of 4 acres of woodland, the original family home, gardens, potting shed, cottage/drive shed, and picnic areas. Experience and explore the history of Ireland House through guided tours, education programming, and historical demonstrations.
