SERVPRO Water Restoration Services in Waterbury Can Mitigate Loss and Conduct Effective Restoration

Waterbury is one of ten large cities in the New York metropolitan area. The town is fondly nicknamed the "brass city" due to its prominent role in manufacturing brass products, clocks, and watches. Set against Connecticut's backdrop, the region has a long history as an early settlement on the East Coast of America and a significant player in the American Revolutionary War. Today, a population of 110,336 makes Waterbury the second most populous city in New Haven County. Despite its dwindling manufacturing trades, Waterbury remains one of the larger cities in Connecticut State.

Waterbury's early modern history was somewhat modest, with a recorded population of just 5,000 people for the first one hundred years of its founding. The Naugatuck River's interconnecting waterways, which gives the city its name, were prone to regular flooding, which kept population and settlements low for the first two-hundred years of Waterbury's existence. However, in the nineteenth century, the growth of the industrial revolution, and its technology, allowed the city to harness the nearby waterways to power their brass-producing factories. The prominence of manufacture manifested as a soaring population that laid the foundation for the city today.

  • The Mattatuck Museum on Prospect Street was founded by the local historical society and gathers exhibits telling the ten villages' story and their growth into modern-day Waterbury. The collection includes American master artists to historical artifacts and features rotating exhibitions throughout the year.
  • The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on West Main Street is a stunning example of local architecture. Built-in 1928, the design reflects the period architecture of the Italian Renaissance, with much of the flourishes inspired by the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.
  • On East Main Street is the Palace Theater which features architecture from the same early twentieth-century period. The traditional playhouse has fantastic acoustics and a rotating program of festive plays, contemporary plays, and classic shows.
