Around Town

WASHINGTON is a rural town in Litchfield County, Connecticut located in the southern foothills of the Berkshire Mountains of New England.  Approximately 80 miles north of New York City, Washington is known for its picturesque countryside, historic architecture, and active civic and cultural life. The dominant geographic features of Washington are the Shepaug, East Aspetuck, and Bantam rivers, and scenic Lake Waramaug, the second largest lake in the state. Mixed deciduous and coniferous forest covers most of Washington, but open agricultural fields are also prevalent, making this a beautiful destination. Within its 38 square miles are 900 preserved acres in Steep Rock and Hidden Valley land preserves, two Connecticut State Parks, two public and three private schools (including Shepaug Valley, Rumsey and The Gunnery).   Just under 4,000 people reside full-time among Washington’s  rolling hills, high plateaus, and river and stream valleys, and more than half that again own getaway second homes.
