Breakneck, The Early Settlement of
Middlebury, Connecticut:

From 1675 to its Incorporation as a Town,

with author Raymond E. Sullivan.


Learn what John Adams thought of his trip through the region;

the mystery of Moses Cook's skull

(How did he die? Why wasn't his skull buried?); the purpose of the pest house and the process of inoculation; and the encampment of General Comte de Rochambeau and his 5000 troops who enjoyed "dancing and frolicking with the lovely beautiful American girls who lived there."

Please join us for the opening of our new exhibit:

Innovations for a World Market:
Manufacturing in the Naugatuck Valley

A century ago manufacturing was the lifeblood of the Naugatuck Valley. But as global economies changed, the largest corporations left the region, creating a popular misconception that the industry is gone. In truth, numerous metal manufacturers are still based in the valley.


Three companies are highlighted in this exhibition:
The Platt Brothers  & Company
The Eastern Company 
Stewart EFI  L.L.C
Each company represents a different aspect of how the region's manufacturers have survived and flourished in a global economy.  

Members: Free Non-Members: $5
