About Our Town

Trumbull is a vibrant community of more than 36,000 citizens that combines small-town New England character and charm with extensive retail, commercial, and light manufacturing activity. The town's excellent schools, safe environment, conveniences and amenities, are just some reasons why Trumbull is a great place to live.

The town was established in 1725 and incorporated in 1797. The town was named after Jonathan Trumbull, a merchant, patriot, and statesman. He was the only governor of an English colony to side with the colonists, and his opposition to England's encroachments into the colonies made him the only colonial governor to remain in office throughout the American Revolutionary War. He served as Connecticut's last colonial governor and its first state governor.

On August 26, 1989, Trumbull Little League won the Little League World Championship after defeating the team from Kaohsiung, Taiwan 5-2 at Howard J. Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, PA.

In 2008,  Xinyi, Jiangsu in China became the Town's sister city.
