Westport is an affluent town located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, along Long Island Sound within Connecticut’s Gold Coast.
The transformation from a small farming town to a suburban residential community of approximately 18,000 has been carefully controlled by zoning and through the preservation of the town’s older colonial landmarks.
The town has had the foresight to preserve almost 1,000 acres of open space for active and passive recreational use. Although there is limited land remaining for development, Wilton retains much of its open feeling and rural atmosphere. Winding back roads with trees, streams, ponds, woods, and rolling hills are all part of the Wilton’s beauty and charm and afford privacy as well as a pastoral setting.
