Town of Newtown

Newtown is a growing and lively part of Fairfield County while maintaining its “small-town charm.” The fifth-largest town in the state, Newtown was established in 1711 and is comprised of the Borough, Sandy Hook, Hawleyville, Botsford, and Dodgingtown. Located on major highways between New York City and Boston, Newtown offers a convenient location for both living and working.

The scenic foliage of autumn and the lush greenery of spring are just some of what the town’s picturesque countryside provides. Click here for hiking information.

With many lively events and a diverse food scene, Newtown attracts a variety of visitors. Local businesses add to the nostalgic feel while the rich cultural scene is host to various artists, writers, and musicians.

The business atmosphere is thriving and supported by locals and tourists alike.
