in New Jersey Historical Markers

In the early years of Burlington the houses were characteristically English in their primitive structure. It was the Swede who intruced the block-house in America. Soon the settlement began to take on the appearance of a town, and to be regarded as worthy of a name. In memory of an old Yorkshire village it was christened Burlington.

in New Jersey Historical Markers

Burlington is divided into neighborhoods, each with an historical name, such as London. London might have been choosen because it's founding during London’s architectural renaissance, the abundance of local clay for bricks, and its position as the new colonial capitol were the foundation for its future legacy of historic and beautiful buildings. The City boasts a large collection of buildings erected before the American Revolution and during the years of the early republic.

In 1797, he contracted to demolish the old brick market, and used the bricks to build a house which still stands at 202 High Street.
