Ireland House at Oakridge Farm

A historical house and property, the original homestead of the Ireland family shares a piece of Burlington’s history and engages visitors with a rich first-hand authentic experience with one of Burlington’s founding families. With guided tours and interpreters in period costumes, visitors step back in time to understand the life of early settlers.

The Museum actively engages the community with a 130+ person volunteer base and provides students internships and co-op placements.
