Weston is the epitome of country New England. In the little "center" of Weston, all the timeless elements of small town life gather in a friendly cluster at what isn't much more than a widening of the road. Here past the serene face of the old Norfield Church and amidst the crossroads gathering of beautiful old farmsteads is the Weston Town Hall and public library.
The 20th century intrudes gently with the presence of a small shopping center offering all the basics in one easy stop; a food market, drug store, hardware store, bank and gas station. Looking around Weston suggests many proverbial Yankee associations like order, simplicity, dignity, harmony, faith, neighborliness and beauty.
From Currier and Ives to Norman Rockwell to the many magazine covers, Christmas cards or calendar illustrations you've seen; this is what we feel New England looks like. Drive around the Saugatuck Reservoir when the geese are on the move and the fall leaves are flaming or make a roadside stop for pumpkins and dried flowers or later, a fresh Christmas tree. Watch the summer swans glide across the old Cobb's Mill pond. Weston images seem brushed with an enduring charm.
In the early years of settlement here, the natural resources of the land gave the community its rural character. Today, although the economy depends on sources farther away, usually Manhattan by rail connection in Wilton or Westport, residents choose Weston for its understatement. They like returning to the pastoral security of home after a day spent in the rush of trains, highways and commercial centers.
They like keeping close to the land and its rhythms, they like the close sense of community, they like Weston because it is truly the country.
