This circa-1976 image reminds us of when:

  • Fairfield Furniture was the long-time occupant of National Hall. (FUN FACT: After Arthur Tauck bought the building — which once served as a bank, newspaper office, town meeting hall and the first site of Staples High School — with plans to turn it into a boutique hotel, he found tremendous structural damage. The roof had been weakened by decades of bird droppings.)
  • There were woods — not a mammoth office building — on Wright Street, behind Wilton Road.
  • Winters were cold enough to freeze the Saugatuck River.

(Friday Flashback is a weekly “06880” feature. Please click here to help us continue flashing back. Thank you!)

Snow Day!

Today’s first-of-the-year snowfall — on the last day of February — created gorgeous scenes all over town.

It wasn’t much.

But today’s dusting is still the heaviest snowfall of 2023.

Tomorrow, we’ll be back to our “normal” (this year) winter: 46 degrees.
