About the Town

Stratford was founded in 1639 by Reverend Adam Blakeman with 35 Puritan families seeking religious freedom. Until the late 17th century, the town was ruled by Blakeman as Pastor in a united religious/municipal format. The goal of these types of communities was to create a perfect outpost of religious idealism.

Today many businesses have chosen Stratford as home including Sikorsky Aircraft, a division of United Technologies. Sikorsky manufactures helicopters for military and commercial applications.

Stratford is bordered on the East by the Housatonic River, on the South by Long Island Sound with many beautiful sandy beaches. Early in the town’s history there were large Oyster beds in Stratford but they no longer exist. The Great Salt Marsh is a major key bird migration stopover and bald eagles can be seen fishing in the Housatonic.

Stratford is served by the Metro-North Railroad which connects to the North to Boston and to the South to New York City. There are two major East/West highways, Route 95 to the South and the world renowned Merritt Partway to the North.
