There are some businesses and landmarks that make a town or city special to those who live here and make us stand out to people who come to visit. We have several places like that here in Shelton. The bucolic scenery of our local farms, the fresh-baked and homemade goods sold here, the locally owned businesses, the historical landmarks and Riverwalk are just a few.
Not every community has what we have. That's why it's so important to support those places that make us a vibrant community. Written Words Bookstore in the White Hills Plaza, 194 Leavenworth Road, is one of those places. Very few communities can boast having an independent bookseller these days. It's a rare and unique addition to our city, that has been in business for more than five years.
