Byram, a village of Greenwich, in Fairfield County, Connecticut is tucked in the western end of Long Island Sound, and occupies approximately one square mile.
Byram borders the shores of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Byram River.
The Phebe Seaman House -- built in 1794 and one of the oldest homes in Byram -- and the Thomas Lyon House are both on the National Register of Historic Places. Mr. Thomas Lyon (1621-1690) was the first settler in historical records. From quarries no longer working came 'Byram Bluestone' which was used locally, but much was shipped elsewhere and some reportedly was used in the building the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and some office buildings in New York City.
The 30-acre Byram Shore and Rosenwald Park offer residents summertime fun with a beach, a ballpark, tennis courts, a fresh-water pool, moorings, a boat launch, slips, a food concession, and areas for barbecues, clambakes and quiet picnics. Scenic views of Long Island Sound can be enjoyed from the Rosenwald House in the park.
Mean travel time to work is about 24 minutes. Commute to Grand Central Terminal in New York City is via a short commute to Port Chester, and then 38-59 minutes by rail.
