... Burton, Ohio – Pancake Town USA
Pancake Town USA
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 1951, over 2.14 million pancakes have been served in Burton to over 649,717 hungry people. More than 26,559 gallons of pure maple syrup have been poured over those pancakes. More than 154,807 pounds of sausage have been cooked, and 1.49 million cups of coffee poured for visitors to Burton.
(numbers estimated from the first pancake breakfast through 2022)

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 73 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 New 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 despair...you can still have unique & delicious pancakes even after the season ends. All year-round many local restaurants, civic organizations and lodging facilities serve pancakes and offer pure maple syrup for your enjoyment!
