Naugatuck Revisited is an exciting new look at this historic Connecticut community. Settled in the early 1700s, Naugatuck was incorporated in 1844 and developed through the ingenuity of entrepreneurs who exploited its rivers and railroads. This volume includes images and stories of the borough's many notable luminaries, including inventor Charles Goodyear, resident and World Series Most Valuable Player Frank "Spec" Shea of the New York Yankees, legendary Hollywood fashion designer Adrian Gilbert, and the founders of the Peter Paul candy company, makers of Almond Joy and Mounds. Robert Redford spent time here preparing for the movie The Natural, and Senator John F. Kennedy made an early morning presidential campaign stop here on his way to Waterbury.
