Revitalization efforts have been able to preserve several historic buildings in downtown Shelton, and efforts are underway to restore some early nineteenth-century buildings back to their original glory. Cobblestone-paved walkways and tree-lined streets bring a homey feel to the downtown location, and historic homes are intertwined with businesses for an incredibly walkable location.

This historic district boasts two churches, in Federal and Gothic Revival style, a cemetery, and famous homes such as the Josiah-Wheeler House and the DeForest-Rudd House.
