Wallingford is an old community, but also one that has successfully transitioned into a modern town bustling with opportunities. This Connecticut community was first authorized by the Connecticut General Assembly on October 10, 1667, to be a village for a new generation of planters and freemen. By May 1670, construction had begun on shared town buildings and 126 people had moved into temporary housing as the new lots and homes were under development. In fact, one of those first buildings, the Nehemiah Royce House constructed in 1672, still stands today. Today, over 45,000 people call Wallingford home. With over 350 years of history and growth, many beautiful historic homes and elaborate landscaping design exist in Wallingford.
Take for example the prestigious Wallingford Victorian Inn whose construction began in 1890. This gorgeous building is an excellent example of grand Victorian architecture with intricately patterned masonry chimneys, small latticed porches, multi-patterned textured shingles and clapboard, and intricate relief work.
Around this inn and its surrounding neighborhoods, you can find examples of beautifully manicured landscaping design in Wallingford. Beautifully maintained shrubbery, hedges, and trees line many of the downtown streets while most homeowners adorn their homes with flowering bushes and ornamental grasses.
In addition to its quaint and charming New England neighborhoods, Wallingford also boasts a highly diversified commercial and industrial base that has attracted many exciting tech companies. The development of several big commercial areas like the Barnes Industrial Park and the Casimir Pulaski Industrial park has helped spur this transition. These and similar commercial locations also boast beautiful and architecturally appropriate landscaping design in Wallingford.
Furthermore, Wallingford’s location on Interstate I-91 and Route 15 gives residents easy access to nearby booming cities and all of their job and educational opportunities.
