Southbury CT Historical

The town of Southbury was one of several towns formed out of a parcel of land purchased from the Paugussett Indians in 1659. It was originally part of Woodbury, which was settled in 1673. A new meetinghouse for the Southbury Ecclesiastical Society was built in 1733, and in 1787 the town of Southbury was incorporated. Although incorporated as part of Litchfield County, Southbury has been in New Haven county for most of its existence. In the 1800s, water power became essential to the growth of Southbury's industries, which included mills, tanneries, and distilleries. The power for these industries came primarily from the Pomperaug River and the Housatonic River. As the industrial revolution progressed, many of these businesses left for Waterbury. In the 1920s, Russian expatriates Count Ilia Tolstoy, son of author Leo Tolstoy, and George Grebentschikoff founded an artists' colony at the end of Main Street, known as Churaevka (or Russian Village). At its peak, Churaevka had a printing press used by Russian and Ukrainian scholars and novelists. Visitors to the colony included the composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. Most of its immigrant population is now gone, but St. Sergius Chapel, designed by Nobel peace prize nominee Nicholas Roerich and built in 1932-33, remains. Churaevka is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
