We All Know Mill Plain Road in Danbury Looks Like Today – What About 100 Years Ago?
We all know Mill Plain Road in Danbury as the road that has it all these days.
You can find great restaurants, retailers, and boutique businesses like Max 40, Panda House, Rosy Tomorrow, Trader Joe's, DSW Shoes, and many many more. Mr. Morning and I were talking, and we both said that if you had to stay on Mill Plain Road forever and never leave, you would always have everything you need.
It's a super-long stretch that runs form exit 1 through exit 4 off of I-84, with no shortage of rush hour traffic as well.
100 years ago, however, it was a lazy stretch of dirt road with very little going on but the weather, as they say.
