Images of America: Weston
The lives of Weston’s settlers from the late seventeenth century on are linked with those of Native Americans who trod the rugged wilderness before them. Today, the memory of the settlers and native people lives on in the special character of this independent town that was once part of Fairfield. Weston has long attracted a diverse group celebrated actors, artists, authors, business executives, and media professionals who have blended easily with farmers and craftsmen. All of them share an appreciation for the natural beauty of Weston’s bogs, streams, and hilly woodlands. Through pictures, Weston tells the history of the town and the people who have loved it.

Village of the Dammed by Jim Lomuscio
The story of the historic rise and fall of one New England town, with sweeping implications for environmentalism and the sanctity of open spaces facing the onslaught of modern development.
Since the early 1940’s, the remains of Valley Forge, Connecticut have lain one hundred feet beneath the waters of the Saugatuck Reservoir. The town, once a thriving nineteenth century iron and steel manufacturing town, was rendered an unwilling victim to the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company’s post-World War I plans for the scenic valley. Historic glass plate negatives depicting the lost town in its heyday, documented in the 1860’s by Civil War photographer Charles H.D. Adelbert Whitlock and others, lay unnoticed in an abandoned garage until their chance of discovery in 1969. In the Village of the Dammed, James Lomuscio has reconstructed from these images and other remarkable primary sources the rise and fall of Valley Forge.
