Map
Dr. Burritt’s home has many features that were unique in his day. The straw bale insulation he used is only one of the many “green” features of this building. The shape of his home and the materials he used are just a few of the unique features students learn about as they enjoy a scavenger hunt. Include a tour of the Historic Park to see how settlers designed structures to take advantage of solar heat, wind power and natural resources.
