NEW FAIRFIELD TOWN HALL, 1920
April 22, 2017
Built in 1759, this is still the center portion of our Town Hall today. Two separate additions were added to this structure in the 1930s. The small fieldstone addition to the building was added after a fire destroyed town records kept at the home of the Town Clerk in 1867.
In 1896, the Sons of New Fairfield voted to install a town library in the lobby where books rested on shelves behind glass doors. The library was open only on Saturday afternoons.
