Cornwall is located in Litchfield County west of Hartford between West Goshen and Cornwall Bridge along Highway 4 near Housatonic Meadows State Park located southwest of Cornwall.

The community of Cornwall was named after Cornwall, England. The residents of Cornwall took an active part in the Revolution and politics. A number of Cornwall men distinguished themselves in the Revolutionary War including General Sedgwick, Ethan Allen, Judge Oliver Burnham, Gen. Heman Swift, and Capt. Edward Rogers.

In 1738, lots consisting of about 50 acres, each, were auctioned off by the Connecticut legislature. By 1740 Cornwall would be incorporated and about 40 men with their families were settled in this remote town.

Local attractions include: Mohawk Mountain State Park, Housatonic Meadows State Park, Cream Hill Lake, West Side Pond, Tyler Lake, Dog Pond, Wooderidge Lake, and Mohawk State Forest. Also nearby is the Mohawk Mountain Ski Area.
