In 1640, the Siwanoy Indians sold the land now known as Old Greenwich to four Englishmen. One of the Englishmen named the area after his home Greenwich, England and it became Old Town as the town began to develop and spread to the west. The name was changed from “Old Town” to “Sound Beach” in 1872 at the request of the New Haven Railroad as they wanted the name for their rail stop. It was then changed to Old Greenwich in 1930. Today, this well loved village has many wonderful amenities: The quaint village on Sound Beach Avenue for shopping, Old Greenwich Elementary School, its own train station that many walk to and from, Old Greenwich Library, Binney Park where residents enjoy tennis, baseball, soccer, sailboat races and many town activities such as concerts and movies; Greenwich Point, a park that includes a beautiful beach, walking trails, public boating facilities and picnic areas where one can enjoy dinner and watch the sunset. Old Greenwich is filled with joggers, bikers and those heading to the beach.
