Greenwich Connecticut History

The city of Greenwich, located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, is named after the city of London, a city in Kent, England, which was located near Kent, England. Greenwich was associated with famous figures in the late 19th and early 21st centuries as a gilded enclave.

The mission of the Greenwich Historical Society is to preserve and interpret Greenwich's history in order to strengthen its reputation as a historic and cultural center of the United States. Greenwich is loved and admired by its citizens, and the cultural atmosphere of Greenwich has been enriched by the contributions of its residents and visitors to the history and culture of New England.

The Greenwich Historical Society, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 1640, collects and documents the history of Greenwich, New York, the United States and its inhabitants, and is located on the east side of Long Island Sound, where it is bordered by the Hudson River to the west and north. The city borders from west to north and looks out over the village of Bayville from the south across Long Island Sound. At this point, there is a bridge connecting the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island, as well as a newly built hi-ride.

Greenwich, known as the gateway to New England, was founded in 1640 and is one of the oldest cities in the United States and the second oldest city in New York. Old Greenwich is conveniently located a short walk from Midtown Manhattan by train or car. Interstate 684 cannot enter or exit, but the nearest intersection is at the intersection of Greenwich Road and Greenwich Boulevard, north of Old Town.

The colony in Connecticut eventually expanded its jurisdiction and surrounded the city around Stamford, making it a separate city until New York came under English control. The colony of New Haven and the Dutch agreed on a boundary line in 1650, but the small town of Greenwich fell back under the control of the Newhaven Colony. In 1660 Stamford was enclosed by the colony of Connecticut and became its own city, which eventually made Greenwich the largest city in the state and eventually the smallest town in Connecticut, and returned to the control of the New Haven Colony. The city grew because of its connection to Greenwich Point Park, the oldest park in Connecticut and one of only a handful of parks in North America. This link between Greenwich and Point and recreation continued and intensified when the city of Stamford became the owner of the property and founded Greenwich Point Park.

The current location of Greenwich Point was formerly called Elizabeth Point in the area that is now called Old Greenwich, as it was called in Elizabeth Neck. The first houses in Greenwich were built of stone and wood, probably from the New Haven Colony, but it also created a strong link between Greenwich and Point that shaped the history of the region. In the early 17th century, the current location of what is now Greenwich Point was originally called Elizabeth Point due to its proximity to the river.
