About New Canaan, Connecticut:
New Canaan, part of Connecticut’s Gold Coast, is known for its excellent public school system, its wide range of architecture from the Harvard Five modern homes to historic New England colonials and farmhouses. The town’s signature center has premiere shopping, classic boutiques, and an elaborate holiday light display.
Until the Revolutionary War, New Canaan was primarily an agricultural community. After the war, New Canaan’s major industry was shoe making which gathered momentum early in the nineteenth century. Instead of a central village, the town grew around regional settlements of clustered houses, mill, and school which developed into distinct district centers in areas including Ponus Ridge, West Road, Oenoke Ridge, Smith Ridge, Talmadge Hill and Silvermine.
In 1869 the railroad was built to New Canaan and many of New York City’s wealthy residents discovered the quiet, pastoral beauty of the area and built magnificent summer homes. Eventually, many of the summer residents settled year-round, commuting to their jobs in New York City and creating the genteel country ambiance that continues to characterize the community today.
