Carl Brown House


Burnsed Blockhouse, Maclenny, Fl. The Burnsed Blockhouse (also known as the Carl Brown House) is a historic site originally located north of Sanderson, Florida, USA, off Jacksonville Road. On May 7, 1973, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The home was later moved from Sanderson to Heritage Park in Macclenny. Restoration was undertaken by the Durable Restoration Company of Columbus, Ohio. It was built by Sheriff James Burnsed in the 1830's at the direction of President Andrew Jackson. This house was restored and partially reconstructed and will soon open as a house museum. The house is unique and the only one of its distinctive design in the state of Florida.
