Academy Hill
Historic District
Established April 14, 1988

First known as Watch House Hill, where the first settlers manned a blockhouse and a palisade to guard the town from threats of Dutch and Indian attack.

Renamed Meeting House Hill when the townsmen built a new meeting house on its southeast corner in 1680.

And called Academy Hill since the Stratford Academy opened here in 1805.

This common has been a gathering place for Stratford's people for over 350 years.
