Sunnylands Archives

Walter and Leonore Annenberg understood fully the importance of retaining records for posterity. Although they couldn’t have known the extent to which Sunnylands, completed in 1966, would become a significant historic site, they saved every piece of ephemera related to the estate, which resulted in a remarkable record of one of America’s most important homes. The Sunnylands Archives contains tens of thousands of objects, documents, books, and photographs that reveal the significant social history of Sunnylands, including visits from U.S. presidents, foreign dignitaries, and royalty.
