16. A Legacy of Education

At the junction of Rte. 58 and Rte. 136, take Rte. 136 North to Easton.

Historic Rte. 136 was the road used by the British on their march to raid Danbury during the American Revolution. This small rural community is one of the most affluent communities on the eastern seaboard. Scenically stunning, almost half of the town's land is owned by the Aquarion Water Company, a major supplier of water for Fairfield County. The Hemlock Reservoir and Aspetuck Reservoir are on either side of the road before this country road takes you back into the woods making this tree lined drive colorful in the fall and cool in the spring and summer.

Within two miles you will pass see the Adams School House on the right. The school was built in 1854 and was used until 1920.
