Norwalk was purchased in 1640, and chartered as a town in 1651. During the Revolutionary War, the town was almost completely destroyed by the British troops, with only six houses left standing. Oyster farming and the New York and New Haven Railroad that started operating through town, contributed to the town’s growth and development in the 19th century.

With two sandy beaches and several ponds, a variety of golf courses, tennis courts, and wonderful parks, the town offers residents a wealth of recreational opportunities. Norwalk is known for its Maritime Aquarium, the annual Oyster Festival that always attracts large crowds, but also for the sophisticated shopping and eating district that is known as SoNo- South Norwalk business district.
