There are two roads to the Main Street of Southbury both cross the Pomeraug River. South Britain Road is the simplest way following along the river. The scenic way is through scenic dairy and fodder farms along a partially dirt road used by many joggers and hikers. Trails branch off this road into the hills or down to the distant river and its woods. As the road nears its end it passes through woods and crosses the river to reach the busy center of town.
Woodbury is a few miles away with its earliest historic buildings and the beginning of the Antiques Road.
Woodbury is the beginning of Litchfield County with its quaint towns set in the scenic hills and landscape. Each is distinctive in its own way. Explore the many historic buildings, events, main streets with shops and restaurants.

Why Jay Carow chose Southbury
If you like history you will enjoy viewing South Britain's 22 homes dating from 1690 to 1880, two churches, and two of the firsts for Southbury, the 1873 Town Hall now a museum and the 1904 Public Library now used to house South Britain's archives and reference materials. There's also the last remaining factory of the 22 that were the gun and trap making center for Connecticut just before and after 1800. Their is a partially unpaved road that leads from the 1904 library to Southbury's Town Center. This is an alternate route to using South Britain Road. The road wanders for two miles over hills and across farm lands and through woods on the way to the center of this town of 22,000 residents. The road is used as much by joggers, walkers, bikers and pet exercisers than cars. The location is 65 miles from Manhattan, about 90 minues by car and 140 minutes by bus. It's 15 mnutes by car from both Danbury and Waterbury. Nearby Woodbury, founded in 1680, has the area's first houses open for viewing and many antique shops at the beginning of Connecticut's Antiques Road..
