Redding is a quiet community who takes pride in its heritage, historical significance, and its educational system. Maybe that's why the town has  been consistently rated among the top "Best Small Towns in Connecticut" by Connecticut Magazine.  Originally an Indian  settlement, the first white man to settle into Redding was John Read, who named his home Lonetown Manor. Official state records stated that the town was named Reading after a town in Berkshire, England- however the spelling was changed and formalized to Redding in the 1880's  so it would not be mispronounced.

At one time, there was a dispute about the boundary lines of the town between Wilton and Ridgefield, and their respective boundary lines were moved approximately one mile.  There is an rock  that purports the intersection of Redding, Weston and Wilton, and there was some dispute at one time about this boundary line location, where boundaries were moved approzimately one mile. Go see this rock for yourself - the letters F, R and N are cut into the rock, showing each towns location. F for Fairfield (Now known as Weston), R for Redding, and N for Norwalk (now known as Wilton). What a great piece of history!
More private and rural than its Fairfield County neighbors, Redding is still a wealthy town.  Neighborhoods include Georgetown, Poverty Hollow, West Redding (Metro North Has a station here),  Lonetown, and Redding Ridge. Redding has had a number of famous residents, including the diplomat and poet Joel Barlow, as well as one of Connecticut's most famous residents- Mark Twain. He moved here in his later years, and traveled back and forth to "Bermooda". He donated some of the first books to the public library. He was so much a benefactor to the library that he required every male guest to leave $1 for its cause, and hosted a gala benefit in the library's honor, which was eventually named after him.
When you're in Redding, visit Putnam Memorial State Park, with its  American Revolutionary War ties, as well as its caves, and Devil's Den Preserve.  The Saugatuck Reservoir is absolutely beautiful and quite scenic.  Don't miss it.......and of course, The Mark Twain Library.
