The Norfield Historic District is a 18-acre (7.3 ha) historic district in Weston, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.[1] It includes the present-day town center of Weston, which was known as Norfield during 1795-1920.[2]

It was listed for its meeting architectural criteria, and included 16 contributing buildings.[1] The district includes a total of 25 institutional and residential buildings, of which nine are more modern and non-contributing including the town hall and town library.
