Burr House and Guild Hall Doors Open Richmond Hill

Burr House and Guild Hall

In this cottage-style house that Rowland Burr built in 1820, visitors can purchase fibre arts and enjoy tea and scones (available for a nominal fee in the Tea Room). The Guild Hall, built in 1857 by the Evangelical Association of North America, was moved here in 1978 and is now a crafts studio. Enjoy weaving, spinning, pottery, and quilting demonstrations.
