Burke Station Historic Marker


The marker reads: "Burke Station. Burke Station was raided in December, 1862, by Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart. It was from this site, originally the Burke Station Depot, that he sent his famous telegram to Union Quartermaster General Meigs complaining of the poor quality of the Union mules he had just captured." The marker is located next to the former depot at the intersection of Old Burke Lake Road and Burke Road. Later the building housed the Burke United Methodist Church and is currently commercially used.
