Town Guide 2011



It all began with ‘one large tree’ In the Native American language spoken in the area, the original word, “Naukotunk,” is said to have meant “one large tree,” and designated the preferred, shaded fishing spot used by the area’s first inhabitants. Like most names in this part of Connecticut, the borough of Naugatuck has roots in the Indian heritage. Read on, and follow the tour through the early days of this community. Naugatuck was part of Waterbury for more than 170 years before residents petitioned to be recognized as a separate town. For many years, Naugatuck’s first, unofficial name was Judd’s Meadows, after Deacon William Judd was given the first division of the meadows downstream of what was then Mattatuck (later changed to Waterbury). Years later, the region around Judd’s land included the land of many other men, who were the first landowners. Religion played a major part in the second name change. By 1765, there were enough residents of Judd’s Meadows to hold religious services during the winter close to their own homes, instead of traveling to Waterbury each Sunday. This “winter privilege” would allow them to have a service in their own community, from the first of December to the end of March. In 1773, a new ecclesiastical society was created and named the Salem Society. Later, the region became know as Salem Bridge. Finally, some time during the early 1840s, when there were 1,730 residents of the region, a petition was submitted to the General Assembly to form a separate town. A post office had

opened in 1834, and the name “Naugatuck” was used, in deference to the river and to avoid confusion with Salem, Conn., in Middlesex County. In the spring of 1844, the General Assembly agreed that the region should be incorporated as a distinct town, by the name of Naugatuck. Now, as to the meaning of “Naugatuck,” Dr. Joseph Anderson offers this explanation: “It appears in the Paugasuck deed as the established designation of the Mattatuck River, it was once the most widely known of all the aboriginal names in the valley.” This was offered in Dr. Bronson’s “History of Waterbury.” “Naukotunk,” the original form of the word, is said to mean “one large tree” and to have been the original name of Humphreysville (now Seymour), which was so named after a large tree, formerly standing near Rock Rimmon at Seymour. The same derivation also is given in a letter from Stiles French, of Northampton, Mass., formerly of Seymour, whose authority was Eunice Mauwee. Mr. French says, “She [said] that the name Naugatuck meant ‘one big tree’ and was pronounced by the Indians ‘Naw-ka-tunk,’ This ‘old big tree’ stood about where the copper works in Seymour now are and afforded the Indians some shade when they came to the Rimmon Falls to fish.” For those living in Naugatuck today, or for its visitors, the sight of “one large tree” is reminder enough of the borough’s humble beginnings. – Eileen K. Ehman

Welcome! Citizen’s News is pleased once again to provide its readers with the Naugatuck Town Guide. If there’s something you need to know about our borough, this is the place to find it. Naugatuck has seen its share of significant events over the past year. But none resonated deeper in the borough than the demolition of Peter Paul. The borough watched as the iconic landmark that was Peter Paul came crashing to the ground, brick by brick. Although the demolition signified the end of an era in Naugatuck, what makes a town cannot be found in bricks and mortar. The essence of the borough is in its people. The pubic servants who dedicate themselves to Naugatuck. The volunteers that run our community organizations. The proud, decent and hard-working citizens that call Naugatuck home.

All of these people together make Naugatuck the great place to live that it is. Citizen’s News hopes that this guide will help you take advantage of everything this borough has to offer. We look forward to being your community voice again this year and hope you will keep the Town Guide at your fingertips., Our best, Elio Gugliotti, Editor
