You’ve seen the beautiful white house at the corner of Third and Market with the sprawling, inviting yard and old-fashioned double porches, but do you have any idea what it is? The Burgwin-Wright House is a restored colonial home (circa 1770) at 224 Market St., Wilmington [Map this], occupied by the British during the American Revolution, now preserved as a house museum by the Colonial Dames. It’s open from 10 a.m.to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tours are hourly, with the last beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $4 for children 5-12 and free for children 4 and younger. For more information, call 762-0570 or log on to www.burgwinwrighthouse.com.
