Burwell School Historic Site

The Burwell School Historic Site, a historic house museum located in Hillsborough, NC, preserves and interprets the history of its antebellum and Civil War era residents. The property was the location of one of the state’s earliest female academies, The Burwell Academy for Young Ladies (1837-1857) and also the girlhood home of Elizabeth Hobbes Keckly, enslaved on the property from 1835-1840. Keckly later purchased her freedom and became the dressmaker and friend of Mary Todd Lincoln in the White House. Today, the Burwell School Historic Site offers free docent-led and self-guided tours, a variety of cultural events, and engaging and innovative heritage education programs for children and young adults.
