Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park is located in Canandaigua, Ontario County, State of New York and consists of approximately fifty acres. The Mansion is the former summer home of Canandaigua benefactors Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson. The property consists of the mansion, a greenhouse complex, and several gardens. Construction was begun on the mansion in 1885 and completed in 1887. The gardens that exist today at Sonnenberg were developed between 1903 and 1920. A partnership has been established between Sonnenberg Gardens (the non-profit organization) and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation to keep this public garden blooming and open to the public. The proposed project is the Roman Bath Stabilization Project, which was identified as a needed renovation project from a report from the Building & Landscape Conservation Unit of the NYOPRHP.
