Old Greenwich in Fairfield county, Connecticut

Old Greenwich, CT

A New England gateway, bordering New York's Westchester County, Old Greenwich is a prime location for convenient travel by rail or highway to major metropolitan centers.

Old Greenwich is a village/section in Greenwich. It was founded in 1641 and has been a long time beach community. One of the founding settlers was Elizabeth Fones Winthrop, niece and daughter-in-law of John Winthrop, founder and Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

The village of Old Greenwich was called "Sound Beach" in the last century, and the main road through the small downtown business section is Sound Beach Avenue. This street serves as a popular hangout for children and teenagers as well as hosting annual street fairs and events. The Old Greenwich Railroad Station, originally called the "Sound Beach Railroad Station", serves commuters in the neighborhood. It was built in 1894 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The town's largest beach is on a thin, long peninsula at the southwest end of the neighborhood. The beach is called Tod's Point, named after a former resident.

The town's tremendous interest in culture, the arts and the social welfare of its residents is illustrated by the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra, the Greenwich Arts Council, conservation groups, a senior center, two civic centers, local theater groups and an excellent health care system. The Arts Center features works by local artists and allows you to see the artists creating and performing their works.
