Shelton History

The city of Shelton was established in 1919 by merging the towns of Huntington and Shelton, founded, respectively in 1789 and the 1860s. Prior to World War II, Shelton was home to many manufacturers, due to the presence of the Housatonic River dams and access to cheap electrical power. The current name originated in a manufacturing village started in the 1860s named for the Shelton Company founded by Edward N. Shelton — also founder of Housatonic Water Power Company. Shelton is home to one of the largest arson fires in the United States history. It happened in 1975 when the Sponge Rubber Products plant (formerly owned by B.F. Goodrich) was set on fire. On June 14, 1978, Bob Marley and the Wailers played at the Pinecrest Country Club in the city as part of the group’s tour.
