18. Discovering Unforgettable Landscapes

Leaving Colebrook, take Rte. 182A to Rte. 182; bear right on Rte. 182 and follow for eight scenic miles to Norfolk passing colonial homes, stonewalled fields, and panoramic views.

Norfolk was the last town in Litchfield County to be auctioned off in 1738 due to its rocky and hilly landscape making it undesirable for farming.

Norfolk is known as the icebox of Connecticut, cold in the winter and delightfully cool in the summer; attributes that make it attractive as a summer colony. At the junction of Rte. 182 and Rte. 44, take Rte. 44 west to the center of Norfolk.
