Geography & History
Trumbull is located within easy access to most other major cities and towns within Connecticut. Just 45 miles southwest from the capital city of Hartford, Trumbull is also easily accessible to New York City by rail or highway. Trumbull was originally founded as an extension of the town now known as Stratford. The 'Village of Unity' was formally established in 1725, but had already been home to several families prior to this time. The town eventually incorporated in 1797 and took the name of Jonathan Trumbull, the only man to serve as Governor of a Colonial Colony and a newly established state following American independence.
The town of Trumbull covers a geographic area of 23 square miles. To learn more about Trumbull history, visit the Trumbull Historical Society online or in person (located in the Nichols section of Trumbull).
