Burke Station

Burke Station was raided in December, 1862, by Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart. It was from this site, originally 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.

Marker is at the intersection of Old Burke Lake Road and Burke Road, on the right when traveling north on Old Burke Lake Road.
