Welcome to North Canaan, Connecticut

North Canaan is located at the junctions of Route 44 and Route 7 in the northwest corner of Connecticut. The town was incorporated in 1858 when it separated from the Town of Canaan (Falls Village). The town is governed by a Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and traditional New England style Town Meeting.

The Canaan Railroad Station is where the east-west tracks connecting Hartford, Connecticut and Poughkeepsie, NY (and beyond to Campbell Hall, NY where connections were made to the west with other railroads) cross the north-south tracks connecting Danbury, Connecticut and Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The station, completed in 1872 is the oldest railroad station in continuous service in the United States.
