Silas Burke House; Burke VA

I had a recent opportunity to tour around the Silas Burke House on ‘Top O’ the Hill’ in Burke Va. The house is owned by my father’s friend Susie Fowler and her husband. Susie grew up in this house with a large family and has many great stories to share. The house is relatively unchanged from her childhood and included a working Edison Phonograph from the early 1900’s. For reasons I can’t explain I walked away with out getting a shot of that wonderful piece of machinery.

    Hey Dan, that's amazing. I must have driven by that house 5000 times in the last 35 years and always wondered what was inside. Thanks for sharing.

    I grew up in Burke and love the photos you shared. My father passed away on Tuesday and I’m creating a program for his funeral service. I’d like permission to use one of your photos.

    Thank you
