Stratford is the easternmost town in Fairfield County and is situated on Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Housatonic River. Steeped in history and abundant natural beauty, Stratford spans 18.7 square miles and is home to nearly 50,000 residents. The town’s waterfront location offers residents and visitors alike public beaches, marinas, fishing piers and boat-launching facilities.

Stratford has long been associated with the aviation and military industries as well as the theater. In 1939, Stratford became the birthplace of the commercial helicopter industry. Igor Sikorsky developed and flew the first successful commercial helicopter at his Stratford-based aircraft plant. Today, his company, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, remains the world’s leading helicopter manufacturer. The company still designs and produces state-of-the art helicopters for both military and commercial use at its manufacturing facility in Stratford. Also in 1939, Lycoming Engines, an American aircraft engine company, produced radial engines at the Sikorsky plant. After World War II, the plant was converted to produce turbines. For most of its history Lycoming has been part of the AVCO group as AVCO Lycoming. In 1955, the American Shakespeare Theatre, a 1,100 seat theatre, opened in Stratford featuring actors such as Katharin Hepburn, Paul Newman, and James Earl Jones. However, by the mid-1980s, the company operating the theater shutdown operations and the building has been vacant since. Efforts to reopen the theater as a tourist destination have been ongoing but unsuccessful. Top employers in Stratford today include Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., Dresser Instrument, and United Parcel Service.
