The Ogden House is an exceptional survivor of a typical mid-18th century farmhouse and provides a glimpse into the life of a middle-class colonial family. David and Jane Sturges Ogden began their marriage in this home, settling into farm life and establishing a family legacy that lasted 125 years. The Ogden House contains fine furniture, spinning wheels, tablewear and other objects from the Fairfield Museum collections. Once surrounded by nearly 75 acres of farmland and several outbuildings, the Ogden House stands next to Brown’s Brook in the fertile Mill River Valley. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
