Town of Easton

Town of Easton website: http://www.eastonct.gov
Community Profile of:

One of Fairfield County's most rural towns, Easton strives to maintain its original 18th century beauty and seclusion. The result is a completely private and tranquil setting, rich in nature and country charm.

Fruit orchards, dairy and Christmas tree farms, the historic Olde Blue Bird Inn and a classic New England village store make up Easton’s limited commerce. Inn keeping, textiles, farming, milling and blacksmithing once flourished in town.

The community has limited development because Aquarion Water Company of Connecticut, the major water supplier in the area, owns large tracts of land. The water company maintains three vast reservoirs surrounded by 7,500 acres of forest. Picturesque farmhouses, early colonials and newer homes of contemporary and traditional design dot the scenic countryside.

Easton, home to Connecticut’s first free school, continues to provide a solid academic foundation. It has its own elementary and middle schools, but high schoolers attend Joel Barlow High School in Redding, known for its rich academic curriculum and competitive athletic teams.

The Connecticut Golf Club and Aspetuck Valley Country Club offer a variety of social and recreational pleasures to members, including excellent golf courses. The town also provides sporting facilities at its parks, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts and 125 acres of open space for cross-country skiing, hiking, fishing and horseback riding.

The town has no major highways, but commuters can hop on the Merritt Parkway or Interstate 95 in nearby Fairfield and Westport, or drive 15 minutes to catch a Metro North train to Manhattan.
