13. Connecticut Continuity -- Bullet Hill School

Proceed on Rte. 67 north / Rte. 6 east. Bullet Hill School Museum, on the National Register of Historic Places, is the oldest public building in Southbury as well as one of the oldest schoolhouses in the United States that was used continuously from 1789 until 1942. Its name was derived from a hill where bullets were cast for guns during the Revolutionary War. Today it is used for Southbury's 1850's living museum school program.

Just beyond Bullet Hill School, you will pass the classic United Church of Christ built in 1840. This church is the result of the union of the Southbury Congregational Church dating from 1732 and the Southbury Methodist Church dating back to the 1790's.
