New Milford is a beautiful town conveniently located in Western Connecticut near the New York state border. It also is located on the border of Northern Fairfield County and as a result is known as "The Gateway to Litchfield County."
The town is the largest geographically in Connecticut and is home to approximately 28,000 residents. New Milford has seen its fair share of residential and commercial growth over the years, yet it has successfully retained its small-town charm and continues to be a tight-knit community.
One reason New Milford continues to be a great American town is its Downtown. The Downtown has a distinct New England feel with historic buildings, unique small businesses and the Bank Street Theater. Adjacent to this area is the beautiful town green, which was established in 1707 and is the longest in all of Connecticut.
The town is located in the picturesque Housatonic Valley, truly one of the most beautiful regions of the country. From the beautiful rolling hills of Litchfield County, to the scenic Housatonic River, to Candlewood Lake, the largest in Connecticut, there is no shortage of natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities.
