Sharon is located in the northwest highlands of Connecticut, bordered by the town of Salisbury to the north, Kent to the south, Cornwall and the Housatonic River to the east and on the west side by Amenia, New York. Sharon is well known for its picturesque Village Green, which is lined with historic houses dating from the 1730s and marked by its famous stone Clock Tower. Sharon is also well known for the Sharon Playhouse, which was brought to life in the 1950s by a couple who had formerly acted on Broadway
Historically, Sharon’s abundance of recreational opportunities, beautiful high landscapes, and proximity to the railroad line made it an optimal vacation destination and the town attracted many wealthy visitors who began purchasing second homes. Between 1880 and 1930 many older homes were refurbished or new homes were built in the Colonial Revival style that still defines the town today – especially along the South Green. Several estates were built, including the enormous Italianate palazzo “Filston” by Romulus Riggs Colgate and nearby “Hiddenhurst”.
