A joint project between the town and the Fairfield Museum and History Center now gives those interested in nearly four centuries of Fairfield history a way to tour significant historic sites and landmarks clustered around the Town Hall Green area.
New signs erected in the spring provide visitors with some background on the history.
"There are nine all together," said Michael Jehle, head of the Fairfield Museum and History Center. "We worked with the town to obtain some grant funding to do it, and we pitched in some money as well so it didn't cost the town anything."
Jehle said the green has "wonderful history and natural resources and we just wanted to share that background and history and make the town green area a wonderful community area."
He said free pamphlets for a self-guided tour of the historic venues are available at the museum at 370 Beach Road as well as at the Fairfield Public Libary.
