Exploring Weston CT
Founded in October 1787, Weston is a residential community in Southwestern Connecticut with a population of approximately 10,150 residents. It sits roughly 45 miles north east of New York City, offering a unique rural, yet sophisticated, environment without any heavily trafficked commercial roads, making it the perfect blend of natural serenity within reach of virtually endless amenities.
A Brief History of Weston, CT
The first English settlers in the area that became Weston were mostly farmers living in the town of Fairfield, Connecticut. A century later, in 1787, the area was formally incorporated and named Weston after the small fishing village Weston-super-Mare that a large number of the settlers originated from.
The first settlers, being farmers, overcame rocky and difficult soil conditions to grow a wide range of produce, and took advantage of the extensive forests by building and establishing successful wood mills.
By the middle of the 19th century, even though no railroad lines were built through Weston, the area was bustling with 9 different manufacturing plants. The area was hit hard just a few decades later, between the Civil War and the Great Depression, the town’s population dropped by nearly 40%. After this period, the town made a considerable shift in character with artists, writers, and actors from New York moving in after being drawn to its rural appeal and tranquility.
