Woodbury in Litchfield County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
The streams of Woodbury provided power for making cutlery and woolen cloth from colonial days through the nineteenth century, but agriculture was the town’s main occupation, while forests furnished charcoal for the metal furnaces of neighboring industries.
“I love the rocks and rills
Thy woods and templed hills.”
Erected 1976 by Town of Woodbury, Woodbury American Revolution Bicentennial Committee, Connecticut Historical Commission.
