Burleigh, or Burleigh Manor, is a historic home located at Ellicott City, Howard County, Maryland, built on a estate. It is a Federal-style brick dwelling built about 1810, laid in Flemish bond. Also on the landscaped grounds are a stone smokehouse; a much-altered log, stone, and frame "gatehouse" or "cottage," and another log outbuilding, as well as an early-20th century bathhouse, swimming pool, and tennis court. The probable builder was Colonel Rezin Hammond (1745–1809), who bequeathed the manor and to his grandnephew Denton Hammond (1785–1813) and his wife Sara who lived there until her death in 1832. In 1914 the estate was owned by Mary Hanson Hammond with land totaling over including the outbuildings and slave quarters. In 1935 the Estate was subdivided to and purchased by Charles McAlpin Pyle, Grandson of industrialist David Hunter McAlpin. It is currently operated as a livestock shelter.
