Burr Mansion History
Rebuilt around 1790 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 Burr family 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. Read more about it here.
