New Haven Connecticut Region MapWhen Cheshire was originally settled by Europeans, it was part of the town of Wallingford and known locally as “Northfarms”. In 1780, Cheshire separated from Wallingford to become its own town, and for the next 170 years, Cheshire remained a small but prosperous farming town. After the war period, Cheshire began to suburbanize as residents of New Haven began moving outwards from the urban core. Several industrial plants also located themselves in one of the town’s many planned industrial parks. Despite significant residential development, Cheshire has remained a highly agricultural town that has found an economic niche in producing bedding plants for local and national consumers. The town’s slogan is “The Bedding Plant Capital of Connecticut”. Whitney Avenue (Route 10) north from Downtown New Haven will get you here.
