"Historic Home of John Ogden"

The historic David Ogden House is a remarkably well-preserved example of a mid-18th-century farmhouse in Fairfield, CT. The house was built in 1750 for John Ogden, around the time he was married to Jane Sturgis, and remained the Ogden family's abode for the next 125 years. Having survived being burned to the ground by the British who invaded Fairfield in the midst of the American Revolution, the historic saltbox structure is an especially cherished piece of local history. Today, the Fairfield Historical Society maintains the historic home as a museum that illustrates the lifestyle of a middle class, colonial family in the 1800s. Besides the house itself, the Fairfield Garden Club maintains a Colonial Kitchen Garden with plants that were typical of gardens planted around the time the house was built. The David Ogden House can visited outside regular open hours by appointment.
