WESTON: IDYLLIC COUNTRY PRIVACY CONVENIENT TO THE CITY
Residents choose Weston for its understatement. They like returning to the pastoral security of home after a day spent in the rush of trains, highways and commercial centers. They like to keep close to the land and its rhythms; they like the close sense of community. They like Weston because it is truly the epitome of country New England.
Approximately 55 miles from New York City, with a population of 10,222, Weston is a rustic town of sweeping fields, ponds, riverside vistas, wooded forests and century old stone fences. Located just north of Westport in Fairfield County Weston is in close proximity to urban areas. Weston is committed to maintaining its country charm and rural atmosphere with two acre zoning, boasts one of the finest school systems and school facilities in the nation and provides its residents with excellent recreational offerings. Careful town planning a generation ago secured approximately one third of Weston’s twenty square miles for nature conservancies and restricted wetlands. The Town Center provides residents with all of the basics – a grocery store, coffee shop, drug store, hardware store, bank, post office and gas station. Sister city Westport provides beaches and outstanding cultural stimulation.
Devil’s Den, a remarkable 1,756 acre preserve, provides Nature Conservancy programs and hiking on over 20 miles of hiking trails. Lachat Farm is a family owned working farm that celebrates Weston’s history and cultural roots of farming and the arts. They offer extensive educational programs, experiences and events related to agriculture, the arts, environment, sustainability, nutrition and spiritual well being. Summer nights at Lachat provide a magical gathering spot for locals to enjoy live music and food, under the stars.
Weston provides a wide choice of activities and camps for residents. The indoor pool at Weston Middle School is open to the public, year round. Bisceglie-Scribner Park, a 53-acre recreation area, contains Little League fields, picnic facilities, a swimming pond and the Kiwanis Fitness Trail. There are a number of private clubs that provide residents with ample opportunities to enjoy tennis, golf and private club membership.
Emmanuel Church and Norfield Church are famous for their fairs. The Grange Fair at harvest time is another popular event, along with Weston Elementary and Weston Intermediate School’s Memorial Day Fair which is a draw for the entire region. Each year, the parade is followed by a Memorial Day parade, which is hosted by the Weston Volunteer Fire Department.
