PHOTO FROM SHELTON’S PAST: The river (and dam) below

This is an old aerial photo of the dam and spillway on the Houastonic River at the end of Canal Street, with Shelton on the bottom and Derby on the top.

On the Shelton side, notice the long canal just below the river and the baseball field at Riverview Park, off Route 110.

The old photo can be found in the mayor’s office at Shelton City Hall.
