The semi-annual Preserve New Fairfield House and Garden Tour is right around the corner and we are reserving tickets just for you! Set for July 17, the self-guided tour promises to delight the senses with magnificently appointed gardens in their peak of summer beauty and some lovely old structures whose walls could tell some terrific tales. The tour takes you all around New Fairfield, even to a legendary location rumored to have hosted Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio on their honeymoon.

Tickets are $25 and the tour happens rain or shine from 11 a.m .to 3 p.m. No tickets will be sold after 12:30 pm on the day of the event.

The House and Garden Tour begins at the Community Room above the New Fairfield Senior Center, 33 Rt. 37, New Fairfield, where you will get your ticket and map and stop to tour the Hubbell House Museum. Locations are not revealed until the day of the tour. All proceeds benefit Preserve New Fairfield, a non-profit group dedicated to the life and stories of historic structures in town.

“Fare you well, old house! You’re naught that can feel or see,
But you seem like a human bein’ – a dear old friend to me;
And we never will have a better home, if my opinion stands,
Until we commence a – keepin’ house in the house not made with
hands.” – Will Carleton
