Notes:
In Fairfield, Connecticut, the Thaddeus Burr garden is associated with many occurences of Revolutionary times. It was here that John Hancock was married to Dorothy Quincy; the house which was burnt by the British forces was rebuilt almost immediately and stands today surrounded with lawns and fine old trees. The garden path as it approached the house, planted with flowers suited to it history, is shown in the first view.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Thaddeus Burr (former owner); and Mrs. DeVer Warner (former owner).
A wide garden path with mature shrubs and trees, notably lilac, leads to the old colonial home. The second image shows an expansive front lawn with specimen trees and shrubs.
