About The Town of New Canaan
Located in Fairfield County, one of the most affluent counties in the United States, New Canaan is a gorgeous town that provides a perfect balance of contemporary living with a New England charm.
New Canaan was established in 1731 as Canaan Parish and originally the area was a religious community in northwestern Norwalk and northeastern Stamford. Initially, Canaan Parish was not designed as a town, so when it was incorporated in 1801, New Canaan didn’t have a main street or a town hall. The settlement developed as an agricultural community and it remained one until late 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century when shoemaking transformed the town and became the major industry in New Canaan.
As time went on, there were many other small companies that started to grow in different parts of town. Wealthy people were soon attracted to the town once the railroad arrived in New Canaan. Some of them were so charmed by New Canaan that they decided to move to town and began commuting to their jobs in New York City.
New Canaan was also an important center for the modern design movement from the late 1940s through the 1960s. Attracting many artists, writers and media people, world famous architects found in New Canaan a place where their ideas could come to life. They then managed to create many cutting edge homes. The most famous of all was the Glass House, created by Philip Johnson, which can be visited by appointment.
