One of the amazing towns we have the honor of working in is Ridgefield.

A few fun facts about Ridgefield (courtesy of Wikipedia):

Ridgefield was first settled by English colonists from Norwalk and Milford in 1708, when a group of settlers purchased land from Chief Catoonah of the Ramapo tribe.

The town was incorporated under a royal charter from the Connecticut General Assembly issued in 1709.

Ridgefield was descriptively named. The most notable 18th-century event was the Battle of Ridgefield on April 27, 1777. This American Revolutionary War skirmish involved a small colonial militia force (state militia and some Continental Army soldiers), led by, among others, General David Wooster, who died in the engagement, and Benedict Arnold, whose horse was shot from under him.

The Western Connecticut Youth Orchestra, formerly called the Ridgefield Symphony Youth Orchestra, has performed at Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center.

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is a leading venue for the world's best contemporary artists. Its exhibitions have attracted national attention and respect.

Ridgefield has been associated with many people in different fields. A brief summary includes the late actor Robert Vaughn. Authors have included Eugene O'Neill, Howard Fast, Cornelius Ryan, and Maurice Sendak.
