Garrett-Phelps House

Sitting proudly at the top of Snake Alley, the Garrett-Phelps House Museum in historic Burlington, Iowa, sheltered three generations of one family for over 100 years. Built in 1851 and enlarged in 1870, this many leveled home has watched over Burlington through struggles, wars, prosperity and poverty. During an especially difficult period is housed a hospital.

The Phelps House features three levels of artifacts rich in the cultural heritage of Des Moines County.
