    Burgwin-Wright Museum HouseBurgwin-Wright Museum House Wilmington, North Carolina
    John Burgwin would use the old jail as the foundation for his new home, when he began constructing it in 1770, who was a planter, treasurer of the colony and merchant. In 1781, considered to be the most desirable house in the town, Lord Cornwallis would make it his headquarters just before his defeat and surrender at Yorktown, Virginia; and in 1799, Joshua Grainger Wright would buy the house for 3500 Spanish milled dollars, and it would become a residence until 1937, when it was purchased by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of North Carolina. Now, the magnificent house has been completely restored, and is the oldest house museum in the southeastern area of the state, with a lovely Georgian style, filled with 18th and 19th century furnishings and stories of the people that have lived here. The house has a terraced garden, a formal or parterre garden and an orchard with plants and trees. It is one of the finest examples of early American architecture and contains a free-standing structure that houses the kitchen, and craft room, with the open hearth in the kitchen being used for demonstrations of colonial cooking.
