New Canaan is a beautiful town in Fairfield County, Connecticut, one of the most affluent counties in the United States. Established in 1731 as Canaan Parish, the area was a religious community in northwestern Norwalk and northeastern Stamford.
Initially, Canaan Parish was not designed as a town and that is why, when it was incorporated in 1801, New Canaan didn’t have a main street, a central common, or a town hall. The settlement developed as an agricultural community and it remained one until late 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century when shoemaking transformed the town and became the major industry in New Canaan.
In addition, many other small companies started to grow in different parts of town. Once the railroad came to New Canaan, wealthy people of New York were attracted to the town.
