New Milford

New Milford is a unique and special place. The Commission was formed to convince you that this is true and to share those qualities with you. What makes New Milford unique and special? Try these:

•  A truly original, authentic and awe-inspiring Town Green: it’s the longest in Connecticut, has a beautiful old bandstand and is surrounded by period homes

•  70 miles from Times Square (87n-287e-684n-84e-7n)

•  Largest Town in Connecticut: 64 square miles

•  One of the highest points in Connecticut is three miles from the Town Green

•  A drive-through mine tunnel and quarry: 350 acres

•  Multiple access points to the Housatonic River

•  Two turn-of-the-Century steel bridges in picturesque settings

•  Town-owned beaches

•  Access to the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi

•  Vintage railroad station and track

•  Private airport with gliders and small craft

•  A very active and enthusiastic Historical Society that can help with research
