Newtown is a town in Fairfield County. It’s part of the Greater Danbury metropolitan area as well as the New York metropolitan area. Newtown was founded in 1705, and later incorporated in 1711. In 1705, English colonists purchased the Townsite from the Pohtatuck Indians, a branch of the Pasgussett. It was originally known as Quanneapague. Settled by migrants from Stratford and incorporated in 1711, Newtown residents had many business and trading ties with the English. It was a stronghold of Tory sentiment during the early Revolutionary War. Late in the war, French General Rochambeau and his troops encamped there in 1781 during their celebrated march on their way to the siege of Yorktown, Virginia, which ended the Revolution. An important crossroads throughout its early history, the village of Hawleyville briefly emerged as a railroad center. The town’s population grew to over 4,000 c. 1881. In the following decades, the population dwindled to a low of 2,635 in 1930 before again growing. Local industry has included the manufacture of furniture, tea bags, combs, fire hoses, folding boxes, buttons, and hats, as well as farming, and mica and feldspar mining. The game of “Scrabble” was developed in Newtown by James Brunot.
It’s no secret that Newtown has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Hike with the llamas at Rowanwood Farm. That’s right – llamas! Take in a show at the Town Players of Newtown. Make sure to stop by the C.H. Booth Library. Don’t pass it because it was designed to complement the homes in the area! After a day about like that, take some time for a truly unique farm to table experience at Farmhouse Restaurant. we suggest the grilled octopus to start and for dinner, the chicken asiago. Or the duck. Or the scallops. Can’t go wrong with any of it, really! Year round, people flock to Newtown to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Newtown, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.

No matter the season, your pest control service needs will be taken care of by a local exterminator that knows the area and the pests that are common to it. In the summer, they know what that the ponds and birdbaths many people have around their homes can be exactly where mosquitoes like to breed. They know that the ticks that come out during the summer months can transmit Lyme disease so while nobody can help the wood areas around Dickinson Memorial Park, they can help your backyard stay free from them. In the cooler months, they know mice can try to make their way into your garage – especially if that’s where you keep the 20 lb. bag of dog food!
