Overview

The Southbury town seal reads, "Unica Unaque," which translates to "the one and only." The daughter of the former Ancient Woodbury was settled only fifty years after the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth and remains the only town in the United States with this name. Since the town's beginnings as a haven for religious dissidents from Stratford, it has drawn many groups and diverse personalities, from Nazis with the German Bund in 1937 to artists and writers, including Ilya Tolstoy, son of Leo Tolstoy. Through vintage images, Southbury describes the history of a town that started as an outpost of religious freedom and continues to inspire both visitors and residents alike.
