Trumbull, CT

The area comprising the town of Trumbull, CT was occupied by the Paugusset Indian nation for thousands of years before English colonists arrived here during the Great Migration from England and established the town of Stratford, Connecticut, in 1639.

In 1725, Stratford residents living in the northern part of the town petitioned the Colony of Connecticut to establish their separate village. They wished to call their new village Nickol's Farms, after the family who lived in its center. However, the Colony named it Unity instead. The village of Unity merged with the village to its west called Long Hill (organized in 1740), to form the town of "North Stratford" in 1744.

In the late 1780s, North Stratford began to petition the Connecticut General Assembly seeking independence from Stratford. The Assembly finally granted full town rights in October 1797 and named the new town after Jonathan Trumbull.

Today, Trumbull, CT is situated in Fairfield County featuring numerous attractions such as Whirlwind Hill Farm or Indian Ledge Park combined with stores like Westfield Trumbull Shopping Center and multiple dining spots including Chayna Peruvian Cuisine Large city - Southwestern Connecticut along Long Island Sound, 50 miles northeast of New York City.
