Introduction to Weston, Connecticut
English settlers first arrived in this area in the early 18th century. Weston was created in 1845, when North Fairfield was divided into two parts. Early settlers in this area grew potatoes, onions and apples here. However the town never had a railway line passing through it, which damaged prospects of non-agricultural businesses.
