Set in Fairfield County, Shelton was settled by the English as part of the town of Stratford in 1639. On May 15, 1656, the Court of the Colony of Connecticut in Hartford affirmed that the town of Stratford included all of the territory 12 miles inland from Long Island Sound, between the Housatonic River and the Fairfield town line. In 1662, Stratford selectmen Lt. Joseph Judson, Captain Joseph Hawley and John Minor had secured all the written deeds of transfer from the Golden Hill Paugussett Indian Nation for this vast territory that comprises the present-day towns of Trumbull, Shelton, and Monroe. Shelton was split off from Stratford in 1789, as Huntington (named for Samuel Huntington). The current name originated in a manufacturing village started in the 1860s named for the Shelton Company founded by Edward N. Shelton—also founder of Ousatonic Waterpower Company. The rapidly growing borough of Shelton incorporated as a city in 1915 and was consolidated with the town of Huntington in 1919 establishing the present city of Shelton.
It’s no secret that Shelton has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. The adults in the group will enjoy the Jones Family Farms where there’s everything from a winery to cooking and food and wine pairing classes. The kids will love going to Beardsley’s Cider Mill & Orchard with pick your own apples and cider donuts. And everyone will love stopping at Wells Hollow Creamery for ice cream. With over 60 varieties to choose from, allow us to suggest the campfire s’mores and the sea salt caramel truffle. Great. Now we want ice cream. Year round, people flock to Shelton to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests.
