At the Rte. 6 and Rte. 67 split, take Rte. 6 east through the Historic Districts of Southbury and Woodbury. This road was a major thoroughfare used by General Washington, Lafayette and Rochambeau during the Revolutionary War and has been designated as the Grand Army Highway of the Republic because of its importance to the founding of our nation. In fact, Rochambeau marched on this road to join General Washington in the critical battle of Yorktown against the British led by General Cornwallis.
Today this historic tree-lined road is graced by an architectural melange of beautifully kept 18th and 19th century houses; many have been converted to antique shops, classic churches, and beautiful landscapes.
