Weston is one of the most affluent towns in the country and is located in southwestern Connecticut, and bordered by Westport, Easton, Fairfield, Redding and Wilton. Collected data suggests that this town had the highest median income in all of Fairfield County in 2008. Almost 25% of Weston is devoted to open space. Known and respected for its conservation restrictions, the town also takes pride in its heritage and goes to great lengths to preserve its historical sites.  The Weston Historical Society is an active one, and the town maintains three historic districts; The Bradley Edge Tool Company Historic District, The Kettle Creek Historic District and the Norfield Historic District.

 The History of Weston begins in the early 18th century, when the first settlers from England arrived. They settled in what was originally a part of Fairfield until Weston incorporated in the late 1700's. Mostly farmers, their main crops were apples, onions and  potatoes.  By the mid 1850's, there were plenty of factories in town, as well as Grist, cider, lumber, and fulling mills, the only factory left in town by 1900 was  the Bradley Edge Tool Company which unfortunately burned to the ground in 1911.

The Saugatuck Reservoir holds approximately 12 billion gallons of water and is the compilation of land purchased by the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company in the 1920's ifor that purpose. In 1927
the Connecticut General Assembly gave BHC the power to condemn property when necessary, and by 1936 they had acquired most of the 5,000 acres necessary  to build the reservoir. Scenic, beautiful, and well protected, as is much of Weston.

Area and Neighborhoods in town include Lyons Plains, Weston Center, Aspetuck, and Georgetown, on the Redding line. There is a two acre lot minimum on residential property, no condominiums in town, and there is little commercial development, aside  from a few stores in the center of town.

Westonites and nearby residents alike look forward to the Hurlbutt Elementary School PTO Memorial Day Weekend Fair, the Weston Volunteer Fire Department's Memorial Day Parade, and The Grange Fair at harvest time, as well as the quiet enjoyment of Westons acres and acres of protected land. Devil’s Den has 1765 acres of protected beauty, and roughly 40,000 visitors a year apparently think the same thing! The  Katherine Ordway Preserve has nearly 62 acres and an arboretum, and the 645 acres (16 preserves) of Aspetuck Land Trust are spread out enough over town that trails are easily accessible to just about every neighborhood.

Other recreational facilities include the 53 acre Bisceglie-Scribner Park which has baseball fields, a jogging trail, the Kiwanis Fitness Trail, picnic facilities and a swimming pond and runs along the Saugatuck River.
Morehouse Farm Park has 8 ball fields, 6 acres along the Saugatuck River at Keene Park, and open land around the Saugatuck Reservoir.
Weston never had a railroad built through it, but is serviced by the Merritt Parkway and and Routes 53 and 57. New York City is only about 45 minutes away, and a good number of town residents work in Manhattan because the commute is minimal for the privacy and tramquility that this town provides. Actors, artists and  writers from New York recognized this as early as the 1930's and many chose Weston to be their home, inlcluding Robert Redford, Christopher Plummer, Rodney Dangerfield, Keith Richards, Bette Davis, Jose Feliciano and Eartha Kitt.
