About Burwell School Historic Site
The Burwell School Historic Site preserves the setting for one of the state’s earliest schools for girls, The Burwell Academy for Young Ladies. Today, the site’s two-acre property encompasses the Burwell residence (ca. 1821, 1848), the original brick classroom building of Robert and Margaret Anna Burwell’s school (ca.1837- 1857), a rare brick “necessary house” (ca. 1837), and beautiful formal gardens.
The homestead and the grounds are a lovely setting for weddings, parties, and corporate events.
