The Thomas Burgis II House is a historic house at 85 Boston Street in Guilford, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a large central chimney. The oldest portion of the house, the front portion of the main block, dates to c. 1735, and was extended c. 1800 to give it the present saltbox configuration. A wing extends to the main block's left. It is one of Guilford's oldest and best-documented houses, with a deed chain for the property extending to the 17th century.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]
