Joseph Brant Museum

Completed in 1938, this spacious, two-storey clapboard house is a reconstruction of the dwelling built by 1800 by Capt. Joseph Brant, a Mohawk war chief. Originally from New York state, Brant led the Six Nations warriors supporting the British in the American War of Independence. Reviled south of the border as a blood-thirsty marauder, he was welcomed at the end of the war to Canada and given vast tracts of land, including where Burlington stands today.
