The Burtner House (also known as Burtner Stone House) is located on Burtner Road in Harrison Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania in the United States. Constructed from 1818 to 1821 by Phillip Burtner, along Little Bull Creek, the property was originally a working farm and residence of the Burtner family. Through the years, it served as an election polling station and as the setting for town meetings, including the discussions that lead to the construction of the Pennsylvania Canal. The house served four generations of the Burtner family. Spared from demolition for the construction of Pennsylvania Route 28, the Burtner House was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972,[1] and to the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation Historic Landmarks in 1975.[2] The site is home to an annual strawberry festival in June and an annual harvest festival.[3]
