Step inside the Ogden House and experience how the Ogden Family lived in 18th century Fairfield. Museum Docents will lead guided tours giving visitors a behind-the-scenes look inside this New England saltbox house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside in the Colonial Kitchen Garden, learn about colonial era plants, the importance of beekeeping and take part in garden activities led by the Fairfield Garden Club. The Ogden House honey bee project includes apiaries located in Oak Lawn Cemetery that produce honey from the plants and flowers surrounding the Ogden House.
Nearby learn about the experiences of the militia during the American Revolution with costumed historical interpreters and a soldier’s encampment. See what a soldier had to carry, what a wool uniform might feel like, and practice a militia drill formation. Hear engaging stories of how soldiers faced hardships and survived during this important time in American history.
