History


Although the Salem witch trials got most of the attention, Stamford had its own such trial in 1692. The accusations were not nearly as strident as those in Salem, but the lore of the period expanded as the story was told and re-told. Stamford's growth in the 18th and 19th centuries was very much related to the success of New York City. By the late-1800s, New Yorkers began to fancy the shoreline for summer homes. Soon thereafter, the idea of taking up permanent residence in Stamford and commuting to Manhattan by train took hold. The city was incorporated in 1893.

Parks and Recreation


The 83-acre Cove Island Park offers several beaches and scenic bluffs. Birders head to the southwest corner of the park where the wildlife sanctuary is. Right across the parking lot is Terry Connors Ice Rink, home of the Stamford Youth Hockey Association. Cummings Park was formed in 1906 in an era in which shell fishing was still popular. Today, the park offers a public beach. Mianus River Park offers 220-acres of deciduous forest that is enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers, dog walkers and even anglers. The Mianus River meanders through the park.

Jackie Robinson Park honors baseball legend Jackie Robinson who once lived in Stamford. There's a stone statue of the famous slugger. Scalzi Park is loaded with amenities, including ball fields, volleyball courts, tennis courts, bocce courts, roller hockey courts and basketball courts. Cubeta Stadium, a baseball park, is located here. In 2007, a skate park was added.
