On the Market: Original ‘Pepperidge Farm’ sits on six acres in Fairfield

America is not the only entity that was "born" on the Fourth of July. A rather famous company called Pepperidge Farm opened its first major commercial bakery on that date.

"On July 4, 1947 (Pepperidge Farm founder Margaret Rudkin's) dream came true with the opening of the company's first modern bakery," according to the company's website. It was on Independence Day that Pepperidge Farm officials "celebrated by cutting the ribbon on its state-of-the-art bakery," in Norwalk where the nationally renowned company is still headquartered.
