What Is the Colony.


s New Milford natives, we enjoy the rich wilderness we live in, nearly every home and estate in the region appear to be carved into the land—allow just one season untamed, and you’ll find your land growing rapidly into forest.

Our select condo villages are in key locations and have rapid in and out access to every part of the land.

Our commercial district is bustling with action with a jewel at the end of the rope that we simply call “Downtown New Milford “.

The colony is about a mindset we must strive for, one that’s about coming together—with the spirit to build something better and the vision to see it grow and thrive.

New Milford Economy.


ur commercial district runs from the edge of Interstate 84, all the way to the split to Sherman and Northern New York state. Every so often, you’ll find a farm or farm stand, and then land mark bridges and brick buildings. Our recently rebuilt High School is a standing testament to the value we place on education of our younglings.
With a weather observatory, scenic expansive views from any window as well as neatly groomed track and field. It’s open to public use and well recommended to stay in shape and leverage the towns great resources.

The New Milford Green.


ur town green runs like a river of green down the center of our historic downtown New Milford. Sidewalks and old grow trees are the key to its charm, along with a trip to River and Rail Cafe. Wander the stores or grab a bite to eat, we’re blessed by many fine dining establishments around every corner of the busy strips.

Our historic downtown green, is well known for its covered band stand and open grassy lawns. The perfect spot to people watch or rest from a daily walk.

Local Dollars .


unning a city is not as easy as you’d think. Lots of moving parts, thousands of families to juggle and appeal to, it’s no small feat to keep it all running smooth. From a home owners point of view, the roads are always being managed and patrolled, the electricity and internet flows fast 95% of the year (save a snow storm here and there). The parks and fields are plentiful, the supply stores are numerous and the taxes are affordable. Compared to our neighbors to the south we enjoy a rich farming culture and easy lightly rural living.


Sidewalk Spotlights.


rom the corner of Veteran’s Memorial Bridge to the New Milford Hospital, the sidewalks of our downtown are like the jeweled necklace that strings our landscape.  With added sections to our growing River and Rail Trail, the journey on foot through our downtown has never been more beautiful.

The folks in this town are showing their pride and patriotic spirit with the two themed crosswalk patterns that dissect the main divides along the green. No matter the weather, and no matter the season, we can’t say enough lovely things about what a lap around town, on foot, will do for your soul.

Riding The Algorithm.

[ Finance Contributor – Dan Calandro ]


iming is one of the things that scares people away from taking control over their investment capital. The question of when to act – to buy, sell, or hold – paralyzes many because they don’t have guidelines that make action easy.

My method, for instance, takes the guesswork out of decision making by inserting triggers like the one highlighted in ACTION POINT APPROACHING back in November ‘19. That blog demonstrates my market-based approach to using asset allocations driven by market activity – not gut instinct or speculation – to make investment decisions.

Early farmers of Northwest Connecticut, a region that became known for its ample yield of wheat, corn and barley. Coaxing these crops from the rocky terrain took a certain type of grit and determination. Today, we take the best our local farmers have to offer and distill fine craft spirits, one batch at a time. They do the growing. We do the batching. And you get a little share in this luscious little section of Connecticut called Litchfield County. Come taste The Spirit of Hard Work®.

Seasonal Spotlight.

W inter is here in New Milford! What a charming time of year. With our scenic views of the Housatonic River on Grove Street, to the farm pastures scattered through out our back country, you’ll still find lots to look forward to as the weather changes.  Driving around the region for fun has become a pastime, and it’s something we locals have come to enjoy. Take your time strolling around and remember some of the key places we have that are seasonal. Take a turn off any back road and just look around.

The farm stands and farmers market are taking CSA members for the 2023 season. Look for scenic drives and a quick coffee to go as a great way to safely “get out of the house”.
