Beacon Falls

First inhabited by tribal communities of Paugassetts, and later, in 1678, settled by English colonists, the area was originally known as Nyumps. Beacon Falls was formed from pieces of the neighboring towns of Bethany, Oxford, Naugatuck, and Seymour and incorporated in June of 1871. The town’s early economy centered on farming, friction matches, and rubber shoes and is service-based today.
