Southport, Connecticut

 The Village of Southport, Connecticut is located along Long Island Sound between the Mill River and Sasco Brook, which is on the Westport town line.
There are approximately 2,200 residents in Southport, and 1,000 households.   Officially named the Borough of Southport in 1831, it was disbanded as a borough  by 1854. Southport remains rich in agricultural and american history, as some of southwestern Connecticut's first families had homesteads here.

With a land area of less than three square miles, Southport has its own railroad station and zip code (06890). Southport is bordered within the town of Fairfield, which was settled in 1639. The downtown area is  listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and boasts an area where buildings from three centuries are protected with strict historic regulations. The historic district boundaries are the railroad on the north; the Mill River and Southport Harbor on the south; Church Street;  Old South Road on the west, and Rose Hill Road on the east.

The Pequot War:  "The Great Swamp Fight" occurred  here in 1637 and it is widely understood that it was quite a violent scene. The Pequot Indians fled westward  to Southport to take refuge with about 200 Sasqua Indians who lived here after their village in Mystic (Missituck), Connecticut was  set ablaze by  the English, led by Captain John Mason and Roger Ludlow. In the massacre, hundreds of women, children and older men perished by the English setting their village ablaze. Nearly three hundred Pequot and Sasqua Indians perished in the battle in Southport that followed..


Southport was once referred to as the "Onion Capital of America". The Southport White Globe Onion, ( also called the "Silver Ball" and "White Rocca)  is an "heirloom vegetable" known throughout the country still  for its firm and pungent flavor, which is great for cooking It was developed here in the late 1800's, and was a major export until the onion blight.  You can still buy seeds for this famous onion variety
