Waterbury is known as both a beautiful vacation spot and a great place to live. Since 2000, this historic town has experienced unique challenges, all of which have been met by a sense of resiliency and determination. Devastated from Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, Waterbury residents rallied together to rebuild their town and the local economy. Part of this revitalization included Waterbury emerging as a leader in the farm-to-table and craft beer movements, as well as becoming a top tourist destination. Told by members of the community in their own words, this collection of stories, gathered by the Waterbury Historical Society, captures the essence of Waterbury's community and illustrates its ability to persist and celebrate in the face of adversity.
