Durham Homes for Sale
Situated midway between New Haven and Hartford, the rural community of Durham, Connecticut was incorporated in 1708 and today is known for its annual fall Durham Fair which began in 1916. The fair attracts more than two hundred thousand visitors, but is only one of the many things the community has to offer prospective new residents. Durham is also home to the Miller Pond State Park which provides opportunities for mountain biking, hunting, cycling, and fishing. Similarly, Mattabesett Blue Trail and Tri-Mountain State Park collectively offer one hundred and sixty miles of trails for mountain biking, walking, and hiking, too.
This Middlesex County community has had its share of notable citizens, including former NBA player Vin Baker, the first graduate of Yale University, Nathaniel Chauncey, Wisconsin State Senator Charles D. Madsen, New York Yankee Hall of Famer Vernon “Lefty” Gomez, and the founder of the State of Texas, Stephen F. Austin. Beyond the aforementioned fair and recreation destinations, Durham is also home to Durham Farm Museum, Dumas Tree Farm, and the Miller Tree Farm which hosts a pick-your-own-tree event each December.
