Historical Homestead Tours
 

Burleigh Manor is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours are by appointment only. 

Animal Sanctuary and Eco-retreat Tour
 

BMASER offers public tours to visit with the animals. We ask for a small donation of $10 per adult and $5 per student/senior citizen. All donations are tax-deductible and fully support the care of the animals. Note: This does not apply to those who are visiting their adopted animals. Individuals who have adopted one or more of our animals may attend visiting hours free of charge. Boots are highly recommended.

Burleigh Manor also hosts private tours of the animal sanctuary and historical grounds. For groups requesting a private tour of the animal sanctuary, a donation is suggested based on the size of the group: $50 for up to 5 people; $100 for 6-10 people, and $200 for groups larger than 10 people.
