Cornwall, Connecticut. Most everyone who lives in the Litchfield Hills, or has taken the amazing drive up Route 7 through Litchfield County is familiar with the covered bridge in West Cornwall. It is certainly a well known landmark, it is estimated that the covered bridge was built somewhere around 1864.
The town of Cornwall is located north of Kent and Warren, CT and can be reached by the very scenic drive up Route 7. The trip up Route 7 from New Milford all the way to Massachusetts is one of my favorite day trips, it winds through some of the most beautiful country Litchfield County has. Although the Berkshire Mountains run through most of Litchfield County, Cornwall really feels like the start of something special, different, the beloved Berkshire Mountains, and it is as beautiful as one would think the Bershires are. Following the Housatonic River, the trip is an easy drive. Bring your camera, bring your appetite for both eye candy and wonderful food, and be prepared for an absolute delight to the senses! The Bershires are famous for the arts also, many local artisans call this area home. (And if you are an antique lover, bring your wallet. There are so many antique stores to stop and browse, or should I say buy in.) There is just something so special about the Berkshire Mountians you know!
Cornwall, CT covers approximately 46 square miles of what the town of Cornwall claims to be the "Greenest" in Connecticut. There are roughly 1,400 people calling Cornwall home, it is a very rural community, providing a wonderful full time home or fantastic second home country living to those wishing to escape the hectic city life. There are homes of all sizes and prices in Cornwall, from the most modest to the wildly fabulous. I have myself shown the most amazing castle in Cornwall. It is truly a mini castle, although not so mini... if you know what I mean.
Check out the town of Cornwall CT website. It is full of local information and will give you the flavor of this very beautiful town in Litchfield County. Cornwall is also home to Mohawk State Forest.
