The Mansion

The centerpiece of the Tarrywile property is a magnificent twenty-three room shingle-style Victorian mansion built for prominent Danbury physician Dr. William Conrad Wile (1847-1913) in 1897.

The Castle

Originally known as the “Sanford Castle”, the castle was constructed in 1897 to serve as a summer home for noted photographer E. Starr Sanford. 

The Grounds

Located in Danbury, Connecticut Tarrywile Park is one of Fairfield County’s hidden gems consisting of 722 acres of pristine open space as well as a classic Victorian mansion available to host public and private events ranging from business meetings to weddings.
