Weston is tucked within a wooded 20 square mile area in Fairfield County, just 15 minutes from two Metro-North rail stations and 10 minutes from Route 15, better known as The Merritt Parkway.
A town of approximately 10,000 residents, Weston boasts a rich history, dating back to the Paugussett Indian tribe; a nationally recognized school system, all on one campus; a vibrant senior activities center; a bustling village hub— which includes a food market, pharmacy, restaurant, bank service station, and post office; an ‘up to the minute’ library; town parks—including Bisceglie-Scribner Park with a 22-station fitness trail, swimming pond, and playing fields, and the 42-acre Lachat Town Farm; nature preserves—including Devil’s Den, with over 20 miles of trails and Trout Brook Valley; and a recreation department that addresses the interests of all ages.
An eclectic mix of residents, which adds to its cultural liveliness, 83% of its residents, 25 and older, hold a bachelor’s degree or more.
