All About: Goshen

Population: 2,697 (which is about 2,500 more than we would have guessed)

County: Litchfield County

Size: 45.2 square miles

History: Goshen’s history is pretty humdrum. There were farmers, then there was a church, then a while later there were schools (including a fancy prep school), and then some musket manufacturing. It is also home to something known as the pineapple cheese factory, which sounds disgusting.

Something Weird: Poor Goshen. It used to be home to part of the Appalachian Trail, but the trail was re-routed west of the Housatonic River. That seems kind of messed up.
