Greenfield Hill Green and Park
Bronson Avenue & Old Academy Road, Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut


Merritt Parkway north to exit 44; turn right onto Congress Street; pass over Burr Street and Mine Hill Road to make a left turn onto Hillside Road; park near the Green Hill Congregational Church (located on the left, west, side of the road).


11/14/2005.  We parked across from the Congregational Church on the east side of Bronson Road.   We walked over to the side lawn area near the church.  We saw a compass on a pedestal: "Erected 1983 by the Greenfield Hill Society in memory of George N. Serre, President 1961-1974."  We noticed how pretty the area is, giving us the feeling of a more or less typical New England green.  At the Green Hill Congregational Church there is a sign: "Greenfield Hill, 1725."

Crossed over to a triangular piece of ground in front of the church.  They have a bench here where a person can sit and take it easy.   There is a plaque here on a large rock that, in part, says: "In honor of the men of Greenfield Hill who served in the World War this memorial is erected."
