About Georgetown

One of the many reasons we love Ridgefield is the rich culture and history of our town and neighboring hamlets. Historic Georgetown is a unique, tucked away village that was formed in the early 1800s, actually comprised of the corners of four towns – Redding, Weston, Wilton, and Ridgefield.

Georgetown village consists of a small but lively historic Main Street, with charming shops, restaurants, cafes, and fun outdoor dining areas. The village has long been a destination for good food and live music, a tradition that carries on today. In 1987, the central portion of Georgetown was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as the Georgetown Historic District.

This unique district reflects the town’s history as an industrial center in the days of the expansive Gilbert and Bennett Manufacturing Company. Whether or not history is your thing, a visit to Georgetown is quite inspiring, and especially so during their lively annual celebration.

The Georgetown Day Celebration 2023 is organized by Georgetown Village Restoration Inc.,  founded in 1999 as a collaborative effort in the restoration, revitalization, and maintenance of Georgetown. Their mission is to celebrate the past, support and promote the community’s businesses and residents, and facilitate the continued revitalization of the Historic Village of Georgetown, Connecticut.
