Established in 1709, Ridgefield has been referred to as “the little town that time forgot.” In spite of its proximity to New York City, Ridgefield retains much of its charm of yesteryear, with landmark buildings sandwiched between modern day conveniences.
Ridgefield is the site of the Revolutionary War “Battle of Ridgefield” in 1777. American Generals Wooster and Arnold attempted to hold off the British in the only land battle on Connecticut soil during the Revolution. There are still monuments and markers scattered throughout town commemorating the events or incidents that transpired in that battle.
Our historic Main Street is still the heartbeat of the town, just as it was 100 years ago. Many of the original buildings and homes still stand today. The town is the perfect blend of New England small town charm, combined with Americana’s modern day tastes.
