Populated mostly by farmers, tradesmen, sailors, and shipbuilders through much of the eighteenth century, the town was burned in 1779 by Hessian troops under the command of British Major General William Tryon. Rebuilding was slow but determined, and soon the community had rallied as the busy Southport and Black Rock harbors helped to reestablish Fairfield’s place as an important port of entry. Two centuries later, Fairfield’s shoreline location still influences life in this thriving, comfortable community. Today the interstate highway system, railroads, and air transportation relieve the town’s dependence on the Sound, leaving its coastline open for mostly recreational activities. The onion fields that once flourished in Southport are long gone; the mills and factories supported by an immigrant workforce are mostly closed. Now largely residential, Fairfield attracts newcomers looking for a suburban setting within commuting distance of larger cities. As one of Connecticut’s oldest towns, Fairfield holds beautiful historical homes and still-quaint village centers within its now 30 square miles. These classically New England sights, plus 8 miles of shoreline and sophisticated options for entertainment, dining, and shopping, keep Fairfield on the map for shoreline day-trippers. This eTrail includes detailed descriptions of the best things to do in Fairfield, places to eat and places to stay, boat excursions and charters, and sources of additional information.
