The beautiful town of Wolcott is an excellent place to raise kids, enjoy the outdoors and own a Hot Tub from HydroCare.
Wolcott has 5 schools; 3 elementary, 1 middle school and 1 high school. We have a newly constructed Youth Center and Sports Complex. Our other recreational areas include Woodtick Recreational Area, Farmingbury Hills Golf Course and Peterson Park. Wolcott has 5 large bodies of water; most of the lakes/reservoirs are now privately owned by residential communities, but Woodtick Recreational Area is Town-owned and open to the public.
The Town of Wolcott, originally known as Farmingbury, was founded in 1796 and is named after Governor Oliver Wolcott, who cast the deciding vote in favor of the Town's incorporation. Wolcott is a residential community with a land area of 21.6 square miles and a population of approximately 16,200. We are located in northern New Haven County, and are a short ride to either Hartford or New Haven.
