Norfolk is a town in Litchfield County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 1,787 at the 2010 census[1].

Norfolk is perhaps best known as the site of the Yale Summer School of Music – Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, which hosts an annual chamber music concert series in "the Music Shed," a performance hall located on the Ellen Battell Stoeckel estate to the west of the village green. Norfolk also boasts important examples of regional architecture, notably the Village Hall (now Infinity Hall, a shingled 1880s Arts-and-Crafts confection, with an opera house upstairs and storefronts at street level); the Norfolk Library (a Shingle Style structure by George Keller, 1888/9); and over thirty buildings, in a wide variety of styles, designed by Alfredo S.G. Taylor (of the New York firm Taylor & Levi) in the four decades before the Second World War.
