The Charles H. Burwell House is an historic house museum in Minnetonka, Hennepin, Minnesota. Built in 1883 by Charles Henry Burwell (1838–1917) for his second wife and their growing family. The land was purchased for $1,000.00 and the house was built for about $3,260.00. It is said the home's design was found in the Palliser's American Cottage catalog and is in the Carpenter Gothic/Stick style architecture.
Burwell was the secretary and manager of the Minnetonka Mills Company, the first mill west of Minneapolis, founded in 1874 and ending with the demise of the mills in 1886. The Minnetonka Mills area was the first permanent Euro-American settlement in Hennepin County which is located to the west of Minneapolis. This property on Minnehaha Creek, including the house and two outbuildings, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
