History of Fairfield CT

Puritans founded Fairfield in 1639, making it one of Connecticut’s oldest towns. Most of the original settlers farmed the land. Even in the town’s earliest days, they sold goods in New York and beyond. Early Fairfield is also known for its 1692 witch trial and for developing the Salt-Box style house in the 1600s.

The Revolutionary War dealt Fairfield a critical setback. On July 7, 1779, an estimated 2,000 British soldiers came ashore. They burned homes, schools, a courthouse, 2 meetinghouses, the jail, and other local structures. The Connecticut government offered some citizens cash for their destroyed property. Others accepted state-owned land in an area that later became Ohio. Former Connecticut residents named their new Ohio towns after Connecticut locations.

Fairfield recovered from the war and continued its growth. By 1848, the railroad was helping to transform the town. Manufacturers, shops, and other businesses attracted immigrant workers. Beaches, hotels, and grand homes made Fairfield an ideal vacation spot.
