Sunnybank was the home of Albert Payson Terhune, renowned dog writer, Collie breeder, and owner, and served as the setting for many of his famous dog stories. Although Sunnybank House was demolished in 1969, over nine acres of the property remain for the public to enjoy. Here you can see Lad's grave, and further up the hill, the graves of Bruce, "The Dog Without A Fault," and Jean. Continue along to the graves of the other Collie greats like Wolf, Fair Ellen, Treve, and Gray Dawn at Champion Rock, stop by the old puppy run, and relax as the Master and Mistress did in years gone by at the Lily Pool or the Evening Lookout and feel the magic of Sunnybank.
