Situated on the eastern edge of the historic district, The Burn occupies a very nice piece of acreage that is unusual to possess in the downtown area. It is within walking distance of shopping and dining, but the truly wonderful thing about The Burn is the surrounding homes. There are actually two other bed & breakfast properties on the same block, one of which has an annexed cottage right next door to The Burn. Circa 1834, The Burn is the historic home of the John Walworth family for more than 100 years. The only exception was the three years that Union forces occupied the home as a hospital upon evicting the Walworths. The original dining table is still in the home, as is the original china.
