A parish of Columbia was organized in 1798 and the Town of Prospect was incorporated in 1827. The town consists of a broken table land, at the edge of the Western Highlands, ranging from 600-800 feet in elevation. There were early industries of some importance: pins, needles, hoes, matches, Britannia ware and umbrella trimmings. At one time Prospect was larger that Waterbury employing people who commuted to here, from there.
