An eclectic blend of old and new.
Welcome to Stafford, an unique community steeped in history, activity and recreation. We invite you to explore our town, 58-square scenic miles with unique businesses, outdoor adventures and quaint attributes. Situated in North Central Connecticut on the Massachusetts border, Stafford is surrounded by a backdrop of rolling hills and punctuated with lively villages. From mountains to Main Street, Stafford is both rustic and eccentric - something special - and we invite you to explore all our town has to offer.
The Stafford Brownfields Initiative is a catalyst for community development, both businesses and residents to assist in decisions that promote the removal of blight and contamination, create healthier places to live, work and play, and create jobs and new economic opportunities
FARMS + HOMESTEADS
Settled in 1719, the Town of Stafford originated as a small agricultural community - it’s in our roots - 300 years later that same lifestyle not only continues, but extends to nearly every corner of town. We invite you to explore the homegrown side of Stafford, where roadside stands are piled high with seasonal produce and farm-fresh commodities are created with integrity.
The brightest night in Stafford returns to ring in the holiday season on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (weather date December 10).
