The Burns Union School at the SW corner of Ohio and Main Sts. in Burns, Kansas was built in 1904. It was a work of C.W. Squires and J.J. Clayton. In 1965, it closed as a result of statewide school district consolidation. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]

The building now houses the Burns Community Museum and includes a restored period classroom.[2] It is open by appointment.
