Rowayton, a charming New England coastal village bordered on three sides by water, is one of Connecticut’s most visually stunning and historic communities. Located within the city of Norwalk, the village boasts Long Island Sound and the Five Mile River as its neighbors. About 4,000 residents who enjoy its robust lifestyle and small-town atmosphere call Rowayton home. The village was originally purchased from the Siwanoy Indians in the mid-1600s, and Rowayton eventually earned a widespread reputation as a major oystering center. Steamboats transported visitors to the scenic village during the early 20th century. Today this unique community is the address of choice among individuals seeking a relaxed coastal setting with abundant character and history.
