About New Fairfield
In pre-colonial times, the indigenous people of the area that became New Fairfield were part of an alliance of tribes that extended from the source of the Housatonic to the sea. In 1724, colonial settlers from Fairfield, Connecticut received approval from the General Assembly to establish a new township. According to one account (although this is disputed), they negotiated with Chief Squante of the Schaghticoke Tribe of Algonquian lineage. They purchased a 31,000-acre tract of land that now comprises New Fairfield and Sherman, for the equivalent of $300 on April 24, 1729. The deed was recorded on May 9, 1729, and is now deposited in the archives of the state capital in Hartford.
In 1926, Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) began construction on Candlewood Lake, considered by many to be an engineering wonder. CL&P flooded the valley to control the water flow from the Housatonic and Rocky Rivers, and produce hydroelectric power for the region. The lake shares its shores with New Fairfield, Sherman, New Milford, Brookefield, and Danbury, and is today not only the largest lake in the Constitution State but also home to some of the most expensive real estate along said shores, many of which act as second homes for New York residents.
From a basic vision, the engineering marvel that is Candlewood Lake grew from a sparse and rural valley to a great source of hydroelectric power and a major tourist destination, both of which provide great benefit to the surrounding area and its residents.
