Coventry Historically and Today

Coventry began as an important manufacturing center and rail stop over. Today, most manufacturing has left, and it is currently a mainly residential village with wide open tracts of unspoiled land. More than %70 of the town is completely undeveloped land. Even with this wealth of natural beauty and space, Coventry is still convenient. Modern amenities and comforts are all close by.

The housing market consists of a striking blend of classic and contemporary homes mixed with rustic farmhouses. Most lots are large, surrounded by calm forests, open meadows and farmland. Do not let the rustic landscape fool you; there is no shortage of recreation in this busy little community. Coventry has two libraries and a large number of civic and social organizations. A plethora of exciting community events adds excitement to the daily life of the community. The numerous historic landmarks and antique shops in town offer residents and visitors shopping and sightseeing opportunities.

Young residents of Coventry are provided a solid education with the local school system. There are two elementary schools, a middle school and a high school located conveniently in town.

The stunning natural beauty of the protected Nathan Hale State Forest provides a space for hiking, nature study, horseback riding, controlled hunting and quiet meditation. Coventry Lake offers public beaches and a boat launch for summer activities. Several local ponds provide swimming as well. Numerous playgrounds, parks, tennis courts and ball fields are maintained by the town. Public and private golf courses are available as well. Coventry is a hot spot for recreation!
