The town of Fairfield, located in Fairfield County, is in southwestern Connecticut on the Long Island Sound and is considered a part of Connecticut’s “Gold Coast.” One of the four earliest towns established in the Connecticut Colony by the English in the 1600s, Fairfield was largely a farming community.

In 1635, Puritans and Congregationalists from the Massachusetts Bay Colony sought to establish an ecclesiastical society subject to their own rules. The Massachusetts General Court gave them permission to settle in several areas around Hartford. In 1639, the Fundamental Orders, a set of legal and administrative orders, was adopted and established Connecticut as a self-ruled entity. Roger Ludlowe, one of the framers of the Fundamental Orders, purchased a large tract of land from the Pequonnock Indians, and the town of Fairfield was born. (Over time, the land divided into several other town including Bridgeport, Redding, Weston, Easton, and Westport.)
