The Stratfield Historic District was established when a public hearing of all affected property owners was held on February 6, 1991 and a two thirds majority voted in favor of the district. The District is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Consisting of 280 structures, the Stratfield Historic District is the best preserved historic area in Bridgeport, and the only district in which Commission membership is restricted to owners of property within the District. It is named after the Colonial era farming village of Stratfield and features some of the city’s most distinguished examples of various architectural styles from periods ranging form the 1840s to the 1930s. Please see the brochure for homeowners for more information on the history of the district and on obtaining a certificate of appropriatness for alternations to homes in the district.
