Oxford Greens, ConnecticutOxford Connecticut

Welcome to Oxford Located in southwestern Connecticut, Oxford is a small, rural town that is seeing some rapid changes.  With a new high school, major real estate and industrial development, the recently opened Oxford Greens golf course and a busy airport, there is a lot going on in Oxford. Oxford is a town located in western New Haven County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 9,821 at the 2000 Census. There are several areas in Oxford: Quaker Farms, Riverside and Oxford Center. Oxford belongs to the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk urbanized area, which is a bedroom community of the New York metropolitan area.

Oxford used to be a very rural town with a moderate farming population. However, in the past few years, there has been a large influx of upper-class suburban families that moved into the area. Most of these families, according to local newspapers and statistics at Oxford Town Hall, have moved from extremely affluent towns in lower Fairfield County. They have discovered Oxford's relatively reasonable housing market and natural beauty in comparison to their former towns, thus build $600,000+ homes in Oxford. This has fueled Oxford's decision to build a new high school of their own. Before, the town was too small, had little economic development and taxpayers would burden the cost of the $59 million high school.

Orange, Connecticut Town HallOrange, Connecticut

The rolling hills which make up the 17.6 square miles of Orange, located just west of New Haven, were once owned by the Paugusset Indians. In 1639, the Rev. Peter Prudden purchased the land from the Indians for six coats, ten blankets, one kettle, twelve hatchets, twelve hoes, two dozen knives and a dozen small mirrors.

Orange remained a simple farming community until the mid-1940's when postwar residential construction began. Proper zoning foresight has let Orange develop into an open, well-planned residential community which retains the New England simplicity of which the residents are proud.

Orange is a desirable town in which to live, as evidenced by the above-average school system, a wide range of community services and easy access to urban areas of the state using Routes 1, 15, 34 and I-95, all of which traverse Orange.

Fairfield, ConnecticutFairfield, Connecticut

Welcome to Fairfield. The town of Fairfield is located in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Fairfield is a town of more than 58,170 residents and is located on the coast of Long Island Sound between the cities of Bridgeport and Stamford. The town was settled in 1639 and covers an area of 30.6 square miles. The main switchboard number for the town is 203-256-3000. Town offices are located at Old Town Hall, 611 Old Post Road and at Sullivan Independence Hall, 725 Old Post Road.

In 1639, the General Court of Hartford sent its Deputy Governor, Roger Ludlowe, to establish a settlement. He and his five companions came to Unquowa (the Indian name for Fairfield) and thus a colonial village had its beginnings. Today, Fairfield continues to maintain a sense of history. Three areas have national historic district designations:

  • The Old Post Road area was designed by Roger Ludlowe, setting aside space for public use. The Old Town Hall and Independence Hall are in this area today.
  • Southport retains the ambiance of an early-nineteenth century seaport. Narrow streets, slate slab sidewalks, rolling lawns, weathered shakes and old brick walls covered with ivy enhance the charm of Southport's village.
  • In Greenfield Hill today, many pre-Revolutionary houses still stand. For over 50 years, the annual Dogwood Festival has been held each year in May, and visitors from all over the country and abroad enjoy the beauty of over 30,000 dogwood trees. The festival is sponsored by the Greenfield Hill Congregational Church.
