Sonnenberg mansion dates back to 1887 and was the former summer home to Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson. (I have a summer home too, but it’s also my winter, spring and fall home.) The mansion and surrounding gardens is now open to the public. We visited last Saturday and had a great time. The weather was sunny and in the upper 70’s (F) with barely a breeze. I was hoping for a little more overcast to cut the shadows but, except for a few clouds, the sun was shining all day. That may account for the postcard look of the top photo. But I love postcards and when we vacation I always look for the more interesting ones.
In one of the interior shots you’ll notice what looks like a child’s bathtub. It’s the only one I’ve seen like it. Click on any image to enter the gallery.
