Fairfield, including its village of Southport, is steeped in tradition and is rich in history. Many people who call this coastal Connecticut community home already know that Fairfield was founded in 1639 by Roger Ludlow and was visited in 1789 by Pres. George Washington, who actually spent the night at the Sun Tavern. However, do they also know the history of Pulpit Rock or for that matter, could they locate it? What about the granite planter at the junction of Main Street, Center Street, and Harbor Road—do they know the story behind that? Those residents who "remember Fairfield when . . .," as well as those with a desire to learn more about "Fairfield when . . .," will be fascinated by Fairfield and Southport.
