News 8 took a trip to today’s Destination Location: Beacon Falls

Manufacturing put the town of Beacon Falls on the map — it was once home to the Home Woolen Company and Beacon Falls Rubber Shoe Company. Its brick building, now on the National Register of Historic Places, has since been re-purposed for residential use. 

Beacon Falls was originally made up of parts of Bethany, Oxford, Naugatuck, and Seymour but became its own town back in 1871 because of its strong sense of community. 

That sense of community is just as strong today! Watch the video above to hear what locals had to say.
