Visit our buildings
is our goal to preserve
“The Old Tavern” of Burlington, along with the
history and many
artifacts of Burlington and her residents. This history is housed in
five buildings along Burlington's Main Road, including the tavern and
the Willing Worker's "Comfort Lodge." In addition to the antique
furniture, appliances and items of daily work and living there are many
old photographs, scrapbooks, newspaper clipping and town reports
available to browse or study.
The museum is open on the 4th of July following the pancake breakfast, and Sundays from 2 to 4 PM after the 4th of July through Labor Day. Volunteers from the historical society open the buildings and remain on hand to welcome visitors. There is no cost of admission. The historical society is entirely funded by donations, fundraisers and membership dues. Dues are only $10 per year, with some of our members buying honorary memberships for other family members. No participation is required of members, although we enjoy seeing those who do as we work together preserving our past.
The members of the historical society meet at the tavern on the first Tuesday evening of each month from May through September. On the 4th of July we hold a pancake breakfast fundraiser at the tavern, and sell homemade donuts and coffee on the tavern porch before and during the parade. This is a big day for us with many visitors coming into the museum after the parade.
We’d like to see more people from Burlington or with ties to the area join us, to support the Stewart Lord Historical Society financially, or physically, or both. Won’t you consider being a part of preserving the past for the future? E-mail me if you’d like more information, or attend the next meeting as a guest. You can also just stop by the museum some Sunday afternoon to learn more about our local history, or for more information about joining.
