The History of the Burr
Rebuilt in 1791 by Thaddeus and Eunice Burr following the Revolutionary War’s burning of Fairfield, the house was one of the town’s cultural and social centers. In the years leading up to the American Revolution, the Burr Mansion hosted George Washington, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, John Adams and Aaron Burr. The Burrs held this property from the 1600s until the mid-1800s.
Did you know…? John Hancock and Dorothy Quincy were married at the Burr Mansion in a graceful ceremony in 1775.
