Cornwall

Nestled on the western edge of Connecticut's Litchfield Hills in the Housatonic River Valley, the town of Cornwall is a gem not to be missed! Its quaint, pastoral charms are complimented by recreational fun no matter the season. Settled in 1739 and largely a farming community until the 1940s, Cornwall today is dotted with antiques stores and the workshops of highly skilled craftspeople and artists.
