There’s a place within Newtown that is a place apart. Nestled along the Pootatuck River, it is a village called Sandy Hook. We began with saw and gristmills that provided the timber to build this town. We grew as a place tightly bound as a community.

Rocky Glen State Park

In 1839 Charles Goodyear discovered the process for vulcanizing rubber at a shop in the glen in Sandy Hook, which gave rise to the American rubber industry and lead to the establishment of a rubber factory in Rocky Glen. Located between Glen Road and Black Bridge Road, this park has two easy walks, one from each end of the park. Each walk is about an hour long.
