History Brief:
Between 1675 and 1680, people from Massachusetts came by way of Farmington and Hartford to Waterbury to settle the valley of the Naugatuck River. Settlement spread to this section after 1700 when it was known as South (of Waterbury) Farms. Winter worship privileges were granted in 1765, and the Society of Salem was organized in 1772. Town privileges were granted in May 1844 and the boundary included parts of Bethany, Oxford and Waterbury. Naugatuck was chartered as a borough in 1893; the Town and Borough were consolidated in 1895, making this the only town in Connecticut with a unified Town/Borough form of government. A portion of the town was incorporated into Beacon Falls in1871. Town Birth records begin 1847. Marriage records begin 1844. Death records begin 1852. Barbour collection records cover 1844-1853.
