Description

Sunnie-Holme, 375 Old Post Road, was built in 1909 by Annie B. Jennings, a wealthy philanthropist who helped open the first high school in Fairfield. The mansion was the site of an expansive rose garden that Jennings opened up to the public in 1915. When Jennings died in 1939, Sunnie-Holme was demolished in accordance with her will. A shadow of the garden remains in the form of Sunnie-Holme Drive.
