What’s not to love about this sprawling town?  It’s a little bit country and a bit of a hub on the Jewett City end.

Apparently way back in 1895 that little hub of Jewett City, previously known as Pachaug City, decided it wanted to run its own show so it got separately chartered by the State of Connecticut.  Today, for their efforts, there is 1 mil paid in extra taxes for living within the one mile square area of Jewett City!  You can read all about that fun story in addition to other interesting stuff about Griswold at http://www.griswold-ct.org .
