Sharon Landscape
Sharon Connecticut

Astone clock tower erected in 1885-86 welcomes visitors from neighboring New York State and still provides them with the accurate time. Known for its grand estates, Sharon is a civic-minded community that is centered on an enormous town green featuring a handsome stone library, a red-brick historical society and at Christmas time an enormous colorfully-lit tree that rivals the one at Rockefeller Center.   Residents are justly proud of the TriArts Sharon Playhouse, a summer theater that now offers productions year round. Depending on the season, you can pick your own strawberries, raspberries, apples and pumpkins at Ellsworth Hill Orchard and Berry Farm, and you can always explore flora and fauna at the Sharon Audubon Center, which has over eleven miles of scenic hiking trails on 1,147 acres of mixed forest, meadows, wetlands, ponds and streams. Many well-known actors and actresses–Kevin Bacon, Jane Curtin, Michael J. Fox, Kyra Sedgwick–call Sharon home, and they appreciate the way their neighbors guard their privacy and allow them to live genteel country lives.
