Experience History and Excitement near Norwalk, Ct. Apartments

By

Norwalk CT ApartmentsWhen you rent an apartment in Norwalk, Ct., not only do you get a fantastic apartment, but you also get to enjoy the perks of a seaside town.  Norwalk Harbor and seaport can be found at the estuary of the Norwalk River as it flows into the Long Island Sound. The Norwalk Harbor provides both commercial and recreational values as one of the most important centers for boating, shell fishing and other various water activities. Today, facilities include 15 marinas, 13 private clubs and five commercial ports.

Around the harbor visitors have an abundance of attractions to discover, including the Mill Hill Historic Park, Lockwood-Matthews Mansion, Maritime Aquarium and the Norwalk Farmer’s Market.

At the Mill Hill Historic park, you will be greeted by three historical buildings and a cemetery preserved by the Norwalk Historical Society. The three buildings include the Norwalk Town House of 1835, Governor Thomas Fitch’s Law office of 1740 and the Downtown District Schoolhouse of 1826. The Mill Hill burying ground is the third oldest in Norwalk and is where some of the first settlers were buried. If you’re into things that go bump in the night, check out the Haunting at Mill Hill, a lantern lighted tour through the graveyard and hear stories of murder, death and devastation.

The Lockwood-Matthews Mansion has been a historic landmark since 1971 and is acclaimed to be one of the most significant Second Empire Style country houses in the United States. Built between 1864 and 1868, this 62-room home is unlike any other, filled with Victorian furniture and beauty.  If historic buildings aren’t quite your style, the Maritime Aquarium will offer you something a little more upbeat. With many underwater and land animal exhibits and an in-house IMAX theater, you will be constantly entertained and amazed at this destination.

After exploring Mill Hill Historic Park, Lockwood-Matthews Mansion and the Maritime Aquarium, Norwalk, Ct. apartment residents will enjoy picking up some fresh fruits and vegetables at the Norwalk Farmer’s Market.

Offering the Long Island Sound so much history and excitement, the Norwalk Harbor is truly a gem. For more information about the history of the harbor, visit here.
