Shelton’s history had not been as smooth as other towns have. Being the site of the largest arson fires in the history of the United States, the town’s industry gradually declined. The Sponge Rubber Products plant was the first of the fires and occurred in 1975. Unfortunately, it was not an accident but was planned by the very top officials of the company themselves. This marked the beginning of Shelton’s decline of industries.
After such tragic events of factories either closing up or relocating to safer, cheaper areas, Shelton was able to recover. Through the newly-built Route 8, the town gained its reputation back and was again an attractive place for a new business to be rebuilt. This was because Shelton offers low costs of doing business compared with other neighboring areas like Greenwich or Stamford.
Since then, over 2,000,000 square feet were used by R.D. Scinto Corporation alone for the construction of 12 buildings spread throughout Shelton. It was the perfect timing for the revitalization of its nineteenth-century industrial buildings. Yet, those that are beyond repair were replaced with Shelton’s Veteran Memorial and a farmer’s market.
Over the years, many things happened in Shelton, both good and bad. The Rockefeller Christmas tree has been selected in Shelton twice. In 2007, a tree from Southview Avenue was selected, while in 2013 one was selected from Kazo Drive. In 2008, the movie All Good Things had one scene shot on Canal St. in downtown Shelton, particularly underneath the train trestle.
The EF1 tornado that hit Shelton on July 31, 2009, brought a wind speed of 95 to 105 miles per hour and blew down a lot of trees in Oronoque Trail. Such was considered as the biggest damage the tornado made in the town although there were no casualties reported.
Among the beautiful things to see in Shelton are its wonderful recreation spots like the two private golf courses. The Highland Golf Club of Shelton and the Brownson Country Club were popular places for golf lovers in the area. Annual competitions are held wherein the winners of those 9-hole and 18-hole courses will be given the “Mayor’s Trophy”. Highland has reigned as the champion and the holder of the trophy since 2009.
Shelton, like any other town, can only be as successful as how its residents can take care of the garbage around. If people knew the right way to collect and dispose of their trash, everything would look better. Despite the tragic events in Shelton’s past, there should be no hindrance to its further development.
