Jenny Estate

Jenny Estate (German: Jenny Schloss) is a large estate in the municipality of Thalwil of the Canton of Zurich in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.[1]

History[edit]

The building, now known as Jenny Estate, was built in 1878 as a home and silk fabric factory for Fritz Schwarzenbach-Suter. It became the home of the author Han Jenny (1894-1942) who is best known for his 1934 book Kunstführer der Schweiz (Art and architecture of Switzerland). It was acquired by the municipality and then renovated in 1986-93. One of the outbuildings is now used as a kindergarten.[2]
