Southbury Short History and Information


Sign describing Southbury historySouthbury offers a wealth of Historical Sites, Picturesque Farms, Garden, Rivers, and Lakes & Scenic Drives. Southbury is that quintessential area for that New England Country Feeling.

As you drive through the streets of Southbury, or walk through the new streetscape of Main Street South, you are passing over ground that once was the hunting grounds of the early natives of our town, or possibly where revolutionary troops gathered in our quest for freedom, or where the blaring sound of the railroad locomotive whistle could be heard. Southbury affords its residents with a large amount of open space for hiking, fishing, sports and enjoying the wonders of nature.

Although we have many residents that enjoy the homes that have made Southbury a historians' dream, we also have homes that are as majestic as their views.

Southbury is a town for all, friendly, welcoming and calming. We have the complete package and are very thankful for all that Southbury has to offer.

The Southbury Film Commission hopes that in this great big world you can see our town as we do....... “A Home for a Brilliant Star”.
