FAIRFIELD — If each house along Redding Road were a word, and they were strung together, they just might create a beautiful poem about the architectural and bucolic beauty of this upper Greenfield Hill neighborhood.
It has to be an inspiring setting. This specific part of Fairfield was chosen by Robert Penn Warren as his home for almost 40 years. Warren, America’s first poet laureate, a three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, novelist, Yale professor, and literary critic lived and worked from double converted stone barns topped with a rooster weathervane on Jennings Farm. That barn still stands.
