Southington, Connecticut

Initially known as "South Farmington", Southington officially separated from Farmington and incorporated as its own town in 1779. Southington is located in Hartford County situated in a valley of two mountains on its east and west sides. The Quinnipiac River flows through the town. Southington is home to approximately 42,000 residents and includes the areas of Plantsville, Marion and Milldale, each of which has its own post office. During World War II, Southington was chosen by the War Department to be featured in a defense booklet called "Southington, CT—Microcosm of America". The booklet contained photos of Southington residents at work, at play and in their homes and churches. Its purpose was to illustrate to friends and foes in Europe during Nazi German Occupation typical American citizens and families, their traditions and values. Today, Southington is described as a modern residential, commercial, and industrial community. Attractions in Southington include the annual Apple Harvest Festival, Mount Southington Ski Area, Metacomet Trail, and the Barnes Museum.

Initially Southington was a rural farming community, but eventually industry flourished. Southington became burgeoning community with the construction of housing, taverns, and stores. By the late 1700s, the town had a grist mill, button factory, saw mills, a brass foundry, and potash works. By the early 1900s, Southington developed as a manufacturing center. Some of the products invented in Southington include the first carriage bolt cutting machine, first cement able to harden under water, the break-neck rat trap, and a new tinware process. The mid to late 1900s, was a period of residential and commercial growth. While twenty-eight percent of the workers in Southington are still employed in manufacturing, most of them in the production of fabricated metal and aircraft, industry has declined through the years. Many old factories and buildings were left vacant. The latest to close was Ideal Forging, which filed for bankruptcy in 2001. The town of Southington initiated a revitalizing project of the downtown area. The project was completed in 2002. Additional ongoing renovation projects include the development of upscale homes, condominiums, businesses and parks in the central business district area.
