Terryville


Terryville, on the Pequabuck River, was the industrial center of the Town of Plymouth. It was named for Eli Terry, Jr., who established a clock factory here in 1824. His son, in turn, James Terry, went from clocks to locks, after pioneering in silk manufacture. He developed the cabinet lock of which the Eagle Lock Company for a time had a monopoly. Another son, Andrew, started one of the first malleable iron foundries. These two concerns caused the village to thrive for many years. Ely Terry, Sr. moved to Terryville in 1838, and built a number of houses. He made one of his steeple clocks for the local Congregational Church. [1]
