As we continue our tour of Stamford, letâ€™s turn the Spotlight to Springdale. One of the earliest settlements in Stamford, Springdaleâ€™s first residents date all the way back to 1641! When Stamford sought to consolidate in the 20th century, Springdale resisted and for a time it was truly a village-within-a-city. But in 1949 it capitulated. Remaining true to itsâ€™ roots, homeowners still refer to the â€œvillage feelâ€ of Springdale.
The village center is anchored by the Weed Memorial Library, Springdale School, and many shops and restaurants that offer a variety of choices and conveniences to the community. Prospective buyers see the advantage of being close to daily activities while at the same time being within armâ€™s reach of all Stamfordâ€™s major attractions and services. Springdale also offers a variety of housing options to suit almost anyoneâ€™s needs. Whether a townhouse, garden style condominium, rental apartment or a single family home with a tidy lawn better suits your needs, this bedroom community will be able to satisfy your desire! Homes within walking distance to parks, schools or the Springdale train station provide particular appeal. Each weekday morning, commuters can catch one of 5 trains departing for Grand Central between 6 and 9am.
Once the workday is done, why not catch dinner and movie? No need to head downtown, because Springdaleâ€™s centerpiece is the iconic State Theatre. One of the oldest movie houses in Connecticut, the State Theatre opened on April 25, 1927 as a combination silent movie theatre and vaudeville house. After falling on hard times in the 1980â€™s, it was brought back to life after a complete rejuvenation. Its rich history offers moviegoers a glimpse of an earlier time, while watching first run movies right in their own neighborhood. After the movie, many a good nosh can be found at several highly acclaimed restaurants within close proximity to the theatre.
So if youâ€™re looking for a neighborhood with a â€œvillage feelâ€, high walkability factor and prominent history, Springdale might be the right fit for you!
