One of the Most Treasured Landmarks of Our Region

Nestled in the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York, Sonnenberg Gardens is a New York State Historic Park offering one of the few remaining estates with a Queen Anne Victorian-style mansion and formal gardens in America. Sonnenberg greets 35,000 visitors annually and has been doing so since it opened its doors to the public in 1973. Visitors from all over the globe come to enjoy the relaxing nature and beauty of its gardens. Many also come to learn about the history of this unique place and its owners Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson. We are Ontario County’s #1 tourist attraction.
