Lets cover off Waterbury first. Waterbury (nicknamed the “Brass City”) is a city in New Haven County, Connecticut, on the Naugatuck River, 33 miles (53 km) southwest of Hartford.

The Census Bureau estimates, the city has a total population of 107,902 and is the fifth-largest city in Connecticut and the second largest city in New Haven County.

Throughout the first half of the 20th century Waterbury had large industrial interests and was the leading center in the United States for the manufacture of brassware, as reflected in the nickname the “Brass City” and the city’s motto Quid Aere Perennius? (“What Is More Lasting Than Brass?”).

The city is located along Interstate 84 and has a Metro North railroad station. It is also home to Post University and a regional campus of the University of Connecticut.

Waterbury CT Pthe brass cityThe original settlement of Waterbury was in 1674 as a Town Plot section. In 1675 King Philip’s War caused it to be vacated but the land was returned to in 1677, this time west of the first settlement. Both sites are now marked.

The Algonquin name for the area was “Matetacoke” meaning “place without trees”. The name changed to Waterbury on May 15, 1686, when the settlement was admitted as the 28th town in the Connecticut colony. The name Waterbury was chosen because of all the streams flowing into the Naugatuck River.

Waterbury is a city of neighborhoods. Their distinctive character, shaped by the history and geography of the city, has led residents to form an unusual loyalty to their neighborhood.

Vibrant ethnic communities distinguished the city neighborhoods. Clusters of shops at the street corners offered neighborhood residents everything they could desire, creating villages within the city. For many people, home, work and community life was contained within their neighborhood.

The Waterbury Clock towerDowntown, a short walk away, was “the city”, offering live theater, fancy stores, parades and spectacles.

Union Station Clocktower was constructed by the world famous architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White of N.Y. for the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company. It cost $332,000 to build in 1909. The clocktower is 240 feet (73 m) high and has 318 steps. The clock was made by Seth Thomas Co. with a dial 16 feet (4.9 m) in diameter with 5-foot (1.5 m) tall Roman numerals.

Another educational landmark of Waterbury is the TIMEXpo Museum. The museum, which is in what were formerly factory buildings of the Scovill Manufacturing Company, opened to the public in May, 2001. There are three floors of exhibits that explore the heritage of the world-famous Timex Corporation, tracing back to its early days as the Waterbury Clock Company.
