Originally settled in 1639, the town of Fairfield now has more than 56,544 residents and covers an area of 30.6 square miles. Situated along the coast of Long Island Sound northeast of Westport, Fairfield offers many different living options, all with distinct personalities, making the town desirable to a multitude of people.
True New England charm is abundant in the sylvan hills and meadows of Greenfield Hill, with its endless supply of dogwood trees, horse farms and country estates. Southport and Sasco Hill offer forever views of the Sound. Southport Harbor is a true coastal seaport, with sailboats bobbing in the inlet at the Pequot Yacht Club. Visitors and residents are charmed by the call of the sea and the desire to sail away to a simpler way of life.
The town center is a true walking village, with shops, restaurants, theaters, and night life. Homes in the town center offer village life along with proximity to the beach. If you enjoy the luxury of walking everywhere and welcoming neighbors to call to from your front porch, this is the spot for you. Young families and college students flock to the Stratfield and Tunxis Hill areas of Fairfield because of their proximity to Lake Mohegan, with its shorefront recreational facilities and hiking trails, and to Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University. With all these choices, Fairfield is truly a town that many people happily call home!
