About Granby Connecticut:
Part of Southwick, Massachusetts known as "the Jog" seceded from Massachusetts in 1774, just before the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. This territory became part of Granby when it seceded from Simsbury, but was returned to Southwick as part of an 1803-4 border dispute compromise.
In recent years Granby has become one of Connecticut's wealthiest town's. Once a slightly affluent rural-suburban establishment, an influx of well heeled professionals continues to buy up much of the town's unused and heavily forested land. Multiple communities of $900,000 + homes have appeared in recent years, and continue to spring up on old farmland and unused hillsides much in the same way affluence first made it's appearance in southern California.
Granby's wealthiest section, North Granby, enjoys a median household income of $101,103 which exceeds that of known centers of Connecticut's affluence such as Greenwich, CT (MHI $99,086), Avon, Connecticut (MHI $90,934), Fairfield, Connecticut (MHI $83,512), and Glastonbury, CT (MHI $80,660).
