  • The Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens offer a truly unique experience of local history. A superb example of Georgian architecture, the circa 1770 residence is graced by Colonial style gardens. All rooms are furnished with 18th and 19th century antiques and showcase hundreds of rare objects. Built on the former walls of the 1744 city jail, the house retains many vestiges of its previous incarnation. The property also features a freestanding kitchen house.
