Seymour stepped into the 21st century with a confident attitude and a list of new accomplishments. One of America's first industrial villages, this appealing town has gone through its share of ups and downs since incorporating in 1850.
Categorized as a dying mill town in the 1980s, this diverse community successfully reversed that trend and became known as a prosperous and viable center for business and light industry, as well as a community that places importance on the education of its children and the quality of life of its residents.
Downtown Seymour's quaint brick sidewalk, old fashioned street lamps, Victorian buildings (known as "painted ladies") and bustling stores, combine with two of the town's many parks, a new shopping plaza, a new police station and middle school and a fish and kayak bypass on the Naugatuck River that will incorporate meandering walkways, to signal an aggressive revitalization of the downtown area.

The town of Beacon Falls, with a population of 6,049 is located in southwest Connecticut where it is bisected by the Naugatuck River. The area, 9.8 sq. miles, an Indian camping ground on which many relics such as arrowheads have been found, was first settled by colonists from Derby in 1678. The town was incorporated in 1871 on lands from each of the bordering towns: Bethany, Naugatuck, Oxford, and Seymour. Beacon Falls' principle industries include agriculture, warehouse storage and manufacture of plastic molding and small hardware.
Due to its strong sense of community, Beacon Falls was incorporated from Bethany, Oxford, Naugatuck, and Seymour in 1871. The first friction matches were made here in 1834 by Thomas Sanford, who later sold his "recipe" for $10.00; the Diamond Match Co. ultimately acquired the formula. The town was named after Beacon Hill, which historians say was a lookout for colonists to signal the movements of hostile Indians.
