CITY GUIDE

One of five towns that border Candlewood Lake in Northern Fairfield County, New Fairfield provides quiet scenic living minutes from downtown Danbury.
 
NEW FAIRFIELD HISTORY
 
According to one account, the settlers negotiated with Chief Squantz of the Schaghticoke tribe of Algonquian lineage. Another account states that there were no negotiations with Chief Squantz because he moved to the north end of Squantz Pond land area and refused to “sell” the township of New Fairfield. Eventually, on April 24, 1729, the deed was recorded on May 9, 1729, and is now deposited in the archives of the state capital in Hartford, Connecticut. Originally called “Newfairfield” the small farming community was once present day New Fairfield and Sherman and was incorporated as a town in 1740.
