Southbury 350th Anniversary
The Town of Southbury will be holding a series of events and activities to celebrate the last 350 years of community, culture and history. These celebrations, while largely focused on the past, will also highlight the present, as history is being made every day and is all around us. To stay abreast of all the exciting events, including a Snow and Ice Festival, February 4-11th, visit here.
In 1673, 15 families from Stratford travelled up the Pootatuck (Housatonic) River on rafts and canoes, settling on land in this area known as the Pomperaug Plantation, which was purchased from the Pootatuck Native Americans. Those religious dissidents spent their first night in Woodbury and the second night under a white oak tree on Crook Horn Road, by the former Berry Farm, now known as Settlers Park, in what is now known as Southbury.
