Get to Know New Canaan

A quintessential New England suburb with a charming downtown, sense of community and plenty of cultural activities, New Canaan is an easy train ride away from New York City. The sophisticated Lower Fairfield County community was home to the “Harvard Five” in the 1940s, five visionary architects who used New Canaan as their experimental playground for their mid-century modern designs, building more than 80 homes here.
