Speaking of Stratford, we are right next to that fair city and not far from the great NYC! Our area was settled in 1642 and was incorporated as a town in 1775. Some of our historic businesses were a factory that manufactured corsets and hoop skirts, the Derby Silver Company, and Charlton Comics.
Here in Derby, you have access to the beautiful Osbornedale State Park and the Naugatuck River. Fishing and water sports are big, here, and biking and hiking trails abound.
Derby only has a little over 12,000 people, but we are great people! The median income here is almost $46,000, and the real estate reflects that. Our town was largely built by Polish immigrants, and you can still see this in our streets with Polish restaurants and clubs, along with several delightful Polish shops. Saint Michael’s the Archangel Parish serves mass in both English and Polish.
We have a number of sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These sites are beautifully preserved and open to visitors.
