Fodor Farm Exhibition Opening Reception
Thursday, November 16, 2017

6:00pm - 7:30pm

Location: Fodor Farm  328 Flax Hill Road Norwalk, CT 06854

The Norwalk Historical Commission & the Norwalk Historical Society will be unveiling three exhibitions: "The History of Fodor Farm", "Saving Fodor Farm" and "Fodor Farm through the Lens of Dan Lenore" on Thursday, November 16, 2017 from 6:00pm  7:30pm at Fodor Farm located at 328 Flax Hill Road in Norwalk, CT. Parking is on site. A reception, open to the general public, will celebrate the exhibitions curated by guest curator Elizabeth Pratt Fox. This will also be an exciting opportunity for the public to view the interior of the newly restored Fodor Farm homestead and barn.

"The History of Fodor Farm" explores the history of ownership and use of the property from the time the house was built in 1802 until today with an emphasis on the Fodor family, the longest owners of the property.  Saving Fodor Farm tells the story of the grass roots movement to stop the farm from being developed into a subdivision of 48 houses. The exhibition traces the story through the plans for the development, the rallying of the Save the Farm group, the city taking the land through eminent domain and the success of open land proponents, historic preservationists and the city to develop the site for all the residents of Norwalk.  Fodor Farm through the Lens of Dan Lenore features photographs of the farm taken between 2006 and 2007 by the Norwalk photographer Dan Lenore. Intrigued by the remains of a once active farm, he documented the farm before the transformation into a park. Working in both black and white and color, he captured the serenity of the site with its empty house and barn, fields and trees.
