Litchfield Connecticut Region MapNorfolk was incorporated in 1758, later than most surrounding towns because of the dense woods, rocky soil and high elevation. Originally a farming community, nineteenth-century Norfolk saw the rise of numerous small factories, many of which fabricated tools and farming implements from local iron ore, and mills, which took advantage of fast-flowing mountain streams.

By the late 19th century, however, rail connections to New York, Hartford, Pittsburgh and Boston gave visitors ready access to Norfolk’s cool summers and clean air, and Norfolk soon evolved into a fashionable resort as its small industry declined. The town has ever since had a bustling “summer colony.”

Like several other towns in the Litchfield Hills, Norfolk has, in more recent years, developed a sizable population of “weekenders” from New York City and environs. Haystack Mountain State Park and nearby Campbell State Park attract hikers and outdoor activity seekers. There are several ponds and lakes in Norfolk including; Doolittle Lake, Benedict Pond, Wood Creek Pond, Tobey Pond, and Bigelow Pond. Connecticut Waterfront real estate is available in rural Norfolk, CT.
