The 5 Smallest Towns in All of Connecticut
Has anyone heard of the borough of Fenwick besides the people who actually live there?
I decided to search out the Top 5 Smallest Towns in Connecticut because I was naturally curious and I wanted to find out a bit about their personality. Populations figures are taken from the 2010 U.S. Census.
The borough of Fenwick is located in the town of Old Saybrook and has a population of 52 people. Sotheby's real estate website calls Fenwick, "Connecticut's Best Kept Secret." Fenwick rests on the shores of the Connecticut coast where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound. The borough is a beloved historic summer community.
Bantam, CT, which is only 15 minutes from New Milford heading up Rt. 202 North, weighs in with a population of 759 people according to the 2000 Census. Bantam is considered a borough of the beautiful town of Litchfield. Two highlights in the borough of Bantam are the restaurant, Arethusa al Tovolo and the Bantam Bread Co.
Union, CT is located in northeastern Connecticut inside Tolland County only 20 miles from Hartford and is the smallest town in the state, with a population of 854. There's really not a lot going on in Union except Bigelow Hollow State Park and The Traveler Restaurant where both get a 4/5 rating on Trip Advisor.
Canaan, CT is located in the northwest corner of the state in Litchfield county and has a population of 1,095. The Housatonic River, Appalachian Trail, and the Mohawk Trail pass through town. Great Falls is a must-see if you're in the area. Spring, summer, and fall scenery in the northwest corner is always dazzling.
Warren is also a small town in Litchfield county with a population of 1,461. The town was named after Revolutionary War General, Joseph Warren. Lake Waramaug is only 5.5 miles south of Warren in New Preston and only 13 miles north of New Milford.
