Built in 1837, Ireland House was the home of Joseph Ireland, one of Burlington’s earliest settlers. In 1820, he purchased the land that would become the future site of his family home. Ireland and his descendants occupied this house until 1985. Today, the site consists of the original homestead, gardens, woodland, a potting shed, a cottage/drive shed and picnic area.
