Samuel Burdsal House

Samuel Burdsal, a pioneer pharmacist built this home in 1834 for his family after his marriage to Mary Ann Turner.  This Federal style home was built in what was once the outskirts of the city was also a popular gathering place for many of Burdsal’s acquaintances which included lawyers, judges, military generals, governors, and General William Henry Harrison who later became President.  Samuel Burdsal lived in the home up until his death in 1888.

The home is also known as the Mushkat-Burrow House and is the oldest continuous residence in Cincinnati.  It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
