FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Step back in time to experience life in the 18th century every Sunday from June 5 to Sept. 25 at the historic 1750 Ogden House in Fairifield.

Fairfield Museum docents will lead tours about the history of the house and the Ogden family. David and Jane Sturges Ogden began their marriage in the home, settling into farm life and establishing a family legacy that lasted 125 years. The Ogden House contains fine furniture, spinning wheels, tableware and other objects from the Fairfield Museum collections. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In addition, the Colonial Kitchen Garden adjacent to the house is generously maintained by the Fairfield Garden Club. Guests can walk on the oyster shell paths and view colonial-era plantings. The site also contains an apiary to signify the importance of beekeeping during colonial times. Bee pollination was a key to keeping the gardens productive.

Tours are held from 1 to 4 p.m. and cost $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors and are free for Fairfield Museum Members. The house will be closed Sunday, July 10. Click here for more information.

The Ogden House is located at 1520 Bronson Road, Fairfield.
