Shelton

Shelton, a Fairfield County city of about 41,000 residents, has seen positive growth and revitalization in the past several decades.

Its historic downtown district, located along the Route 8 corridor, is dotted with 19th-century industrial buildings. The city’s hub has witnessed an influx of new businesses and eateries as its leaders look to future economic growth. In recent years, new life has been infused into old factories, and those that were beyond repair have been replaced with parks for residents to enjoy. For example, the city’s 10-acre Riverwalk Park is a popular location for annual festivals, concerts and community events throughout the year. Shelton, which has an active Conservation Commission, has preserved hundreds of acres of open space containing lush wilderness areas, adding to the desirability of its residential neighborhoods. It also has a very active historical society, which seeks to preserve, protect and document the city’s past.

The sections of Huntington and White Hills are particularly charming areas with gracious older homes, unspoiled beauty and deeply rooted history. Numerous sites throughout Shelton are included in the National Register of Historic Places, including the elegant Plumb Memorial Library and Huntington Center Historic District. Shelton residents enjoy access to numerous recreational facilities and parks, including two private golf courses, numerous walking and hiking trails and even a local dog park.

Shelton has witnessed an upswing in the construction of elegant, upscale estates in its outlying neighborhoods. The city is known for being home to the company that invented and manufactures the iconic Whiffle Ball.
