Naugatuck CT Residential Real Estate
Overview: Naugatuck is home to 30,000 neighborly residents. The diverse community enjoys an enticing lifestyle, a reasonable cost of living, and easy access to larger cities like Waterbury and New Haven. Plus, this mountainous region abounds with recreational opportunities and scenic vistas.
History: The Algonquin Indians, the first “settlers” in Naugatuck, gave the town its name, which means “lone tree by the fishing place.” The beautiful waterways that attracted the Algonquians also lured early American settlers to the area and later a variety of mills and factories. Naugatuck was officially incorporated in 1844, and the region blossomed into an industrial New England town. As the number of mills and factories has gradually declined in the past few decades, Naugatuck has been transformed into a bedroom community for Fairfield County, New Haven, Hartford and Waterbury, offering a pleasant suburban lifestyle and friendly small town setting.
Lifestyle: Beautiful parks, museums, dining and shopping are abundant. New England’s ski resorts and beaches are easily accessible. In addition, the cultural, shopping and entertainment attractions of New York City, Boston and Providence are within a two-hour drive. Recently, residents voted to revitalize Naugatuck’s historic downtown, and this strategic community-based decision is anticipated to further enhance the borough’s appeal.
Location: Located in New Haven County, Naugatuck is just south of Waterbury and north of Beacon Falls. The Nautatuck River and Route 8 bisects the town into east and west halves.
