The 1812 Homestead Farm and Museum, sometimes known as the 1812 Homestead or the 1812 Homestead Inn, is a historic house located in Willsboro, New York, that currently operates as a living history museum.

Originally constructed in 1813 as an inn,[1] the homestead now offers tours and programming allowing the visitors to experience what life was like at that time[2] and educates visitors on 19th-century heritage.[3] It is also the current home of the Burt School, which was originally located in Essex.[4]
