Who built Whoville?
The sets were primarily built by Jim Huffman, with help from his employees. Jim and Teresa Huffman are the owners of JC Huffman Cabinetry and are the masterminds who brought Whoville to Fairfield. The company that owns the rights to Whoville has toys for sale on-site, but the sets themselves were made in Fairfield by Jim and his team.
If you’re making the trip to Fairfield for Whoville, I would also encourage you to stop by Central Park in downtown Fairfield to see their lights display. Also, here are some ideas for places to eat while you’re visiting Fairfield.
