The history of Stamford goes back to 1 July, 1640, when Captain Turner of the New Haven County signed a deed with Chief Ponus. Until then, the site was known as Rippowam in the Native American language. As with Salem, Stamford also had an albeit less well-known witch trial.
As early as the late 19th century Stamford had already become a bedroom community for people working in Manhattan, and commuting by train to work. Its city center underwent a massive redevelopment in the 1970's as several New York City corporations relocated to Stamford, resulting in a building boom that added a number of skyscrapers to the skyline.
