Why Seymour? Join an established network of local shops in a beautifully maintained, pedestrian friendly, downtown shopping district, conveniently located off Route 8 and easily accessible by both bus and train. Downtown Seymour currently boasts over 40 shops and restaurants within a four block radius, including antique shops, boutique and specialty shops, tea shop, cupcake shop, historic movie theatre, gallery offices, and local country auction house. The district is also convenient to banking, post office and municipal buildings and provides free on-street and municipal parking within a two block radius of the central shopping district.
The district is bounded by the Naugatuck River and the Route 8 and Route 67 traffic corridors, visible to over 105,000 cars per day with local rail service on the Metro-North line. Downtown Seymour also caters to a robust housing market, with both market rate and senior housing available in the downtown district and a new 26-unit senior apartment building scheduled to begin construction in 2015. Further downtown amenities include a newly constructed $6.3m fishway, public green-space and viewing platforms on the Naugatuck River, electric car charging station, public skateboard park, downtown community center, and local weekly outdoor farm market.
