Why We Love Greenwich, Connecticut; And You Will, Too!
No one remembers the humble days of Greenwich, when it was a small, rural, backwater. Today, it is a more genteel and calmer version of New York City: considering its size, it’s surprising how much is easily available to locals and visitors alike.
Rich Local History
Greenwich sits on the border between New England and New York State. As such, it has often experienced conflict, the most famous of which being the border between Rebel-held New England and British-held New York during the Revolutionary War.
But America’s Independence was not the end of Greenwich and the area’s history. There have been periods of revitalization, downturn, and growth over the centuries.
From Putnam Cottage and the Bush-Holley House in Greenwich to the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum and Kykuit Estate farther afield, there’s plenty of history to explore here.
