Merryall, New Milford Connecticut, Set in the beautiful hills of Litchfield County

Merryall Road BarnMerryall, New Milford, Connecticut. The section of New Milford known as Merryall is set in the beautiful hills of Litchfield County in the northern part of New Milford, between Kent and New Preston. It has long been an extremely popular section of town. The homes are nestled in a highly wooded area, with homes, large estates and farms spotting the countryside.

For those people looking for a luxury second home, there are wonderful antiques set on larger tracts of land in the Merryall section of New Milford, CT. A mere 20 minutes from the Metro North train station in Windgale, New York, and close to Route 22 in New York, it is a 90 minute drive to downtown Manhattan. Beautiful estates ranging in the 1 - 2 million dollar plus price range, privacy, convenience, wonderful setting make this a favored location.

Merryall New Milford CT Farm

The Merryall section of New Milford was given its name by a group of men who were surveying the area  between 1776 and 1731, it is not quite clear. However what is clear is that they were dining by a spring, shared a bottle of spirits, and named the area "Merryall" as they were Merry all! A book titled "History of the towns of New Milford and Bridgewater, Connecticut, 1703- 1882 by Samuel Orcutt is a good read, I find myself fascinated by the early residents of New Milford Township.

More traditional homes of all sizes are also available in Merryall. There are a few older, well established subdivisions with homes ranging in price from the low $200,000 and up. The quiet atmosphere and wonderful yards surrounded by wooded areas make this area of town a favorite for those who prefer a more tranquil area to live in. New homes are in the process of being built, and are available currently at $379,000 and up! Merryall Union Chapel

Steeped in local history, the Merryall Chapel is still in use to this day. Built in 1890 it is a reflection of times gone past. Services are scheduled a few times a year, local clergy are asked to participate.  Across the street from the Merryall Chapel is the Merryall Center for the Arts. On first glance one would pass it right by, however they have a pretty impressive list of performers there on a regular basis.

Weantinogue Heritage Land Trust holds much acreage in Merryall, preserving and protecting the land for future generations. This has become a passion for many that move to this area of town. Because of their efforts we all enjoy the beautiful scenery as it is today.
