Three hundred years ago Danbury was a self-sustaining community on the frontier of the Connecticut colony. Like other cities in this area, Danbury’s economy quickly evolved from agriculture to manufacturing and as a result significantly altered this land. 

WSCU Archives & Special Collections presents a panel discussion about Danbury's ecological history and current environmental issues that are a legacy of that history, including a discussion of the socio-political climate that influenced decisions in the past and forces that may shape how Danbury moves into the future.
