All About: New Fairfield

Population: Approx. 13,953

County: Fairfield (though I would have guessed Litchfield)

Size: 25.1 square miles

History: If you go to Wikipedia looking for the history of New Fairfield, you’ll be really disappointed. Apparently, the closest thing this town has to history is that it was once a vacation community, and is now a collection of annoyingly named communities like Candlewood Isle and Knollwood.

There is a link to some info about the New Fairfield Historic District but as far as I can tell the entire thing is about a guy named Gideon and his family… and it’s not even Gideon Welles. Anyway, it’s got a cute little town center, complete with a gazebo so I guess that’s good enough.

Something Weird: It appears that there is absolutely nothing interesting about this town. The best I could come up with was some kid born on 9/9/09 at 9:09.
