The 1750 Ogden House & Dooryard Garden
This saltbox house was built in 1750 for David Ogden at the time of his marriage to Jane Sturges. For the next 125 years, it was home to the Ogden family in the farming and coastal shipping town of Fairfield. The property once included nearly 75 acres of farmland and several outbuildings. Today, the Ogden House welcomes visitors to discover more about the life of a colonial family.
The Ogden House is open seasonally, 1pm – 4pm, every Sunday beginning June 4, through Sunday, September 3.
The outdoor Dooryard Garden is open year-round.
