Center of Norfolk
Norfolk Connecticut

While it’s been nicknamed the “icebox of Connecticut” because it is cooler than any other part of the state in all seasons, Norfolk might also be dubbed the music capital of northwestern Connecticut. In the summer, it is home to the century-old Norfolk Chamber Music Festival organized by the Yale School of Music, and all year round you can hear world-famous rock, folk and jazz artists at Infinity Hall, an intimate and exquisitely restored 1883 theater in the village center. With a picture postcard town green featuring a magnificent 19th century library and an archetypal white clapboard Congregational church, Norfolk is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and it’s a wonderful place for architectural buffs to wander and admire classic American houses. With three state parks, it’s also a great town for hiking, and you can find the Norfolk Land Trust Trail Guide online. The Norfolk Farmers’ Market is an eclectic mix of farmers, producers, artists and artisans from Norfolk and the surrounding region.
