ASPETUCK...Small Neighborhood In Easton And Weston CT

 

Hellen Keller Middle School

HELEN KELLER MIDDLE SCHOOL

EASTON, CONNECTICUT

 

Aspetuck is a neighborhood in Fairfield County and is located on the Aspetuck River.   A larger portion of Aspetuck is located in Easton, CT but it also extends into Weston.   It is known for being the home of the Aspetuck Historic District, which is a preserved collection of homes from the 18th and 19th centuries.   Aspetuck was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.   Aspetuck gets its name form the Aspetuck Indians that settled along the river in the 17th century.   The Aspetuck Historic District is about 80 acres on the banks of the River and includes the oldest section of Easton. The district is popular for being known as a "Connecticut Farming Community that hasn't seen much change.

 

The district is significant because a house on 163 Redding Road was the long-time home of Helen Keller, who was blind and deaf.   She walked through the neighborhood by herself, using a fence that ran down to the Aspetuck River as a guide to help her.

 

Some other significant structures there are the Orlando Perry House, which displays Greek architecture, a beautiful reinforced concrete bridge with cobblestone and a rubble -stone dam from the mid 19th century.

 

Besides the Historic District there are so many things to see and do in Aspetuck. It is the home of the Aspetuck Rugby Club, Girl Scouts of Greater Connecticut, Aspetuck Valley Trail and the Aspetuck Valley Apple Barn.

Aspetuck Apple BarnASPETUCK APPLE BARN

EASTON, CONNECTICUT

 If you live in Fairfield County CT or are visiting the County you must visit the Aspetuck Valley Apple Barn at at 714 Black Rock Turnpike (also known as Route 58) especially during summer and early fall when the shelves are filled with all types of freshly picked apples.   The Apple Barn is a fun, rustic country treat.

 

 The Apple Barn is open from April through December, the Apple Barn sells locally-grown produce like tomatoes, nectarines, peaches, plums, and blueberries; a wide variety of cheeses, sauces, jellies, and syrups; delicious pastries like fruit pies and the very popular apple cider donuts. The Apple Barn also has great fun gifts like candles and garden ornaments.

 

 Some say the best thing about the Apple Barn, though, is the tremendous selection of plants and flowers it offers during the summer and into the fall. Annuals, perennials, flowering plants, shrubs - Apple Barn has it all!

Make sure to pick up a flaky, delicious apple pie!

What a pretty community Dagny and very quaint. I know that the Apple Barn must be a bustling place in summer and fall harvest times.

Asepetuck sounds so quaint and memorable. It's a town I could see myself living in because of its unique history. Helen Keller changed the lives of so many people. It would be fun to walk that fence line just because she did and I wonder if I did that, could I make it to the end blindfolded? I don't have to be blind to know you're a terrific REALTOR and a great asset to us here on ActiveRain Dagney!
