Burton Hardware Store, also known as Burton Brothers Hardware Store, was a historic commercial building located at Seaford, Sussex County, Delaware. It was built about 1900, and was a two-story, roughly square, frame structure. It had a low-pitched roof and was partially sheathed in sheet metal imitations of rusticated cement blocks. The front facade featured an elaborate pressed metal cornice.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1] It was heavily damaged by fire in 2012 and then razed.[3]
