Neighborhood Info

Washington, Connecticut, population 3900 and 38.7 square miles is comprised of 5 “Villages” - Washington, Washington Depot, New Preston, MarbleDale, and Woodville. History tells us that George Washington passed through and spent the night at Cogswell Tavern in what is now the New Preston section, (presently a privately owned residence). Simple to deduce where we got the name "Washington" . Many home walkways and patios have been crafted with marble mined from the quarries in MarbleDale, hence the name. Polish farmers traveled from Preston, Connecticut to settle new fields and crops in New Preston, hence the name. Washington Depot, that's simple – the railroad passed through along the river and stopped in the center of town to pick up milk from the Borden Creamery in Torrington and to drop off travelers from New York City. The rail beds are still very much evident in Steep Rock Preserve, a local nonprofit land trust, administered by a Board of Directors and enjoyed by people from all over the State for hiking, kayaking, trailriding and communing with nature. Woodville leaves us stumped. It's very wooded, it used to have several farms and and an antique store, we guess you could call it a “ville”. But no history exists to speak to the name, other than it was the location of a dam failure in August,1955 during a week long deluge of rain, followed by a hurricane, that eventually flooded Washington Depot and created the need for a new downtown traffic and retail infrastructure. Washington is the collective Village of all of the smaller ones, and we have the good fortune to have 3 zip codes.
 
Washington was never the wealthy enclave that it has become in the last 20-25 years. It did attract many summer residents because of Lake Waramaug and other areas for vacations. Eventually summer residents became “weekenders”, mostly from NYC, and even some of those became full timers as children grew up and retirements ensued. The 2010 Census tells us that 29% of the homes owned in Washington are second homes.
