Incorporated as a town in May of 1780, Cheshire was predominantly a rural farming community. During the past 50 years, the Town has grown into a residential suburban community. Even with significant industrial and commercial growth, Cheshire retains its rural characteristics with thousands of acres of open space. Historic homes blend with newer tree-lined neighborhoods. Local retailers provide a variety of goods and services, with commercial, industrial and agricultural businesses unobtrusively rounding out the composition of the community. In fact, the active agricultural industry has led to Cheshire's designation as the "Bedding Plant Capital of Connecticut."
