Naugatuck Revisited is an exciting new look at this historic Connecticut community. Settled in the early 1700s, Naugatuck was incorporated in 1844 and developed through the ingenuity of entrepreneurs who exploited its rivers and railroads.

Well done. Another great effort by this author. Remember many of these places from my youth. Especially the Salem Theater.... Liked reading about Mr. Clark Gable getting off the train in Naugatuck by mistake...
