Watertown/Weather

Taft is situated in rural Western Connecticut, in the quiet, safe, New England town of Watertown. A five-minute walk down the hill from Taft gives students access to a variety of clothing shops, a record store, sandwich and coffee shops, pizza, ice cream, and an old-fashioned one-screen movie theater.

Lying at the edge of Litchfield and New Haven Counties, Watertown enjoys easy access to both the conveniences and cultural attractions of larger towns while still being only minutes from the beautiful hills and open spaces of the southern Berkshires.
