Welcome to Gaylordsville,
Gaylordsville is located in the
northwest corner of New Milford, Connecticut. It is part of the
valley known to the Indians as the Wheniuck or Red Plumb Plain.
On the East the boundary is Quanuctnic or Long Mountain. The Southern
boundary is usually considered to be an imaginary line leaving
the Housatonic River somewhere South of the Tory Cave and extending
across Squash Hollow. The Sherman, CT town line forms the Western
boundary, although several homes in Sherman are usually considered
to be part of the Gaylordsville community.
The Housatonic River runs through
the center of the village and is joined by the Wimisink, Womunshenuck,
Naromiyocknowhusunkatankshunk, and Squash Hollow brooks. The South
end of the valley is divided into two narrow valleys by Straits
Mountain or Pauguiack. The North end of this overlooks the village
and is called "the Pinnacle". The area usually considered
to be Gaylordsville is about four miles long and one mile wide.
