Colonial Fences

Fairfield County, CT is a very colonial part of the country. With many towns being established before the American Revolution. Consequently we have more than our fair share of antique and reproduction colonial style homes — many of them surrounded by traditional colonial style fences.

Early settler’s built fences out of necessity. Fences built in the fields were to keep the livestock from roaming. Those were mostly split rail fences made from chopped and fallen tree limbs. Fences built around the houses were to keep the chickens and pigs in the yard and the predators out. Those were mostly what today we call picket fences.

As time progressed and towns grew, utility fences became fashion statements and status symbols. Simple fences with flat pointed pickets of equal spacing turned into elaborate ones. Picket tops became shaped, spacing and heights of pickets varied, and fancy gates were added — all in an effort to impress the neighbors. A tradition that seems to continue today.
