About Trumbull...

Trumbull is a lovely community in Fairfield County, Connecticut that has managed to find balance between its New England town charm and its commercial and manufacturing character. Settled in 1639 as part of Stratford, and incorporated in 1797, the first businesses that started in the area were a grist mill, a saw mill and a dam on the Pequonnock River. Along with small manufacturing activities, the town’s residents were dealing with growing vegetables and raising cattle, pigs and chickens that were sold in Bridgeport and the towns along the Long Island Sound. The population in Trumbull remained pretty much the same, without significant changes, until after World War I when veterans and workers from Bridgeport who needed homes moved to Trumbull. People slowly started to give up agriculture and by 1930, less than half the land was dedicated to farming.

The small city of Trumbull, Connecticut managed to keep its country feel and has lots of open, green spaces that contribute to the quality of life in town. With plenty of parks and natural facilities, residents can enjoy miles and miles of trails, picnic areas, golf courses, ball fields, and playgrounds.

 

Diversity is the word that best describes the town of Trumbull, as there is a very well balanced mix of residents both economically and culturally.
