SERVPRO Provides High-Quality Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Services in Ridgefield

Ridgefield CT is a town in Fairfield County located at the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains. According to the 2010 census, the three-hundred-year-old community's population was 24,638. The U.S census bureau refers to the town center, which was previously a borough, as a census-designated place.

It takes about sixty minutes to drive from New York City to Ridgefield, and the town is popular with visitors. The city boasts a high-rated school system, a unique and historic main street, and people rank it among Connecticut's safest towns. Some of the locales visitors can tour include:

The Weir Farm National Historic Site - This location is the studio and home of J. Alden Weir, the most beloved Impressionist in America. At this national historic site, you have an opportunity to see the works of generations of world-class artists. The home is set amidst over 60 acres of painterly fields, woods, and waterways. These are among the reasons why Weir called his family the "Great Good Place." His farm is a national legacy to historic preservation, the creative spirit, and American Impressionism. It is the only National Park Service site devoted to American painting.

The farm was a source of artistic experimentation and inspiration for Weir and many other artists. They visited Weir and his family, including John Twachtman, Childe Hassam, Albert Pinkham Ryder, and John Singer Sargent. The reassuring rural scenes like the ones surrounding the farm were favorite subjects from American Impressionists. Some of the works that Weir created here include Upland Pasture, Idle Hours, The Laundry Branchville, and the Truants.

After Weir, his daughter Dorothy Weir, a painter, and her spouse Mahonri Young, a sculptor, sustained the artistic legacy. It was here that Young worked on his masterworks; Brigham Young, situated in Washington DC and the This is the Place Monument located stationed Salt Lake City. Young and his family also entertained other artists at this farm just like Weir had, including New England painters Doris and Sperry Andrews.

Doris and Sperry Andrews bought a portion of the property in 1958 and started the 22-year process to preserve Weir's farm. Today, the park includes the Weir Pond, the Weir and Young Studios, the Weir House, gardens, and barns. It is among the best remaining landscapes of American art in the nation.

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum - This art museum is recognized in the nation because it exhibits upcoming contemporary artists. Larry Aldrich founded the museum in 1964. It is devoted to cutting edge art and situated within a historic district attached to a restored historic home containing administrative offices. The design embodies concepts of transparency, framed views, and sequence.

The Aldrich museum features reconfigurable galleries, a classroom, which supports educational programming, spaces for video art and sound, and extensive new landscaping that includes a sculpture garden. Public functions also take place at the museum. It is among the few non-collecting, independent contemporary art museums in the U.S.A and the only one in Connecticut dedicated to contemporary art. It engages its diverse audiences with interdisciplinary and thought-provoking exhibitions as well as programs.

Aldrich museum's public and education programs are meant to connect visitors of all age groups to contemporary art through advanced learned approaches in hands-on tours, workshops, and presentations led by curators, artists, professionals in related fields, and museum educators.

The Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center - This museum and history center has been a tavern, farmhouse, stagecoach shop, hotel for travelers, post office, and the home of Cass Gilbert, a noted architect. In 1966, some Ridgefield dwellers decided to preserve the property's rich history by turning it into a museum. Today the museum continues with its mission of helping students, scholars, and other visitors to comprehend the significant events and lives during its three-hundred-year history. It pursues the mission by protecting and preserving the museum's intellectual and physical assets along with sharing them with a broad audience through outreach programs or on campus.

  • Clean all business premises areas, including the floors, walls, permanent fixtures, and ceilings, to prevent damage that acid soot can cause.
