Log Cabin History

When the Burton Log Cabin was built by the Chamber of Commerce, it encouraged thousands of visitors and residents to come and see the production of maple syrup.

Thousands of visitors did come to the Grand opening in March 1931 and that tradition continues each spring.

The original cabin was patterned after the Log Cabin in Kentucky in which Abraham Lincoln was born. Additions were put on in 1931, 1932, 1954, 1959, and the newest portion opened in 1962.

The Burton Log Cabin is a working sugar house producing maple syrup every spring and making maple candy year round. It is owned and operated by the Burton Chamber of Commerce and also serves as the information resource center for Burton and surrounding areas.

The Cabin is open for business
7 days a week, year-round.

The Story of
Pancake Town USA

Each March since 1951, Burton has been serving pancakes every spring to over 20,000 guests. It became so popular that the Burton-Middlefield Rotary Club decided to officially trademark our town as “Pancake Town USA.”

Today the Rotary Club, the Century Village Museum and other groups continue to serve these annual March Sunday pancake breakfasts. Since that first pancake breakfast an estimated 2,049,610 pancakes have been served to over 621,094 hungry people. More than 26,109 gallons of pure maple syrup have been poured over those pancakes. More than 150,418 lbs. of sausage have been cooked, and 1,424,924 cups of coffee poured for visitors to Burton.
(figures as of 06/20/2018)

In 2015 begining the first Sunday in March our trees will be tapped, sap gathered and boiled, pancakes and sausage cooked, and coffee brewed for thousands of people who for
64 years have made this a yearly tradition.

The Burton Log Cabin will be making maple syrup and maple candy, a tradition in the area which dates back for centuries. An Antique and Craft Show will be in full swing at the High School, the Burton Public Library will host book sales and Century Village Museum will bustle with activity. Local antique stores and shops stocked with new ideas for spring are ready for visitors.

But don’t can still have unique & delicious pancakes even after the season ends. All year-round many local restaurants, civic organizations and lodging facilities serve pancakesand offer pure maple syrup for your enjoyment!
