Joseph Brant Museum

Featured Sites
Burlington’s community museum is a replica of the original homestead of Captain Joseph Brant (1742-1807), a prominent Mohawk leader and Loyalist. In 1798, King George III granted Brant – also known as Thayendanegea – 3,450 acres (1,396 hectares) at the “Head of the Lake” (Burlington Bay). The museum has a collection of more than 10,000 artifacts.
