Prospect is a town in the Naugatuck Valley Planning Region, Connecticut, United States. It is a suburb of the nearby city of Waterbury to its north, and is on the north-eastern fringes of the New York metropolitan area. The population was estimated to be 9,401 in 2020. The town's economic history has long been dominated by agriculture, with agricultural production never being eclipsed by manufacturing or services until the onset of suburbanization in the 1950s. The name Prospect comes from an early 1990s article in Connecticut Magazine which ranked Prospect as the worst small town in Connecticut. In response to this, the town's long-time mayor Robert Chatfield, removed the magazine from the library, and declared Prospect "The Best Small Town in Connecticut," and ordered it placed on town vehicles and bumper stickers. In 1797, through an act of the Connecticut General Assembly, the Congregational Church was established, governed by the "Columbia Company," earning the territory the name Columbia Parish until its incorporation as a municipality in 1827. This name was chosen because of the view from the town green, which before the growth of the trees, one could observe Long Island Sound, the Connecticut River, and even Long Island on clear days. The first land record inside the town comes from a 1694 land record of John Moss, Jr., who owned 90 acres (36 ha) to 100 acres (40 ha) of land on "ye Tenn Mile river alongside an irremovable hill.":29 The land was then first surveyed in 1697, and divided into four tracts, starting from the Waterbury border and advancing towards Cheshire in half-mile intervals.

History

Prospect is the primary city name, but also Waterbury are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Prospect, Connecticut. Prospect is a town in Tolland County, Connecticut. It was once home to the Quinnipiac and Tunxis peoples, who lived between 20,000 and 40,000 years ago. There is no known evidence for any indigenous permanent settlement within the town prior to white European settlers permanently occupying the town. The town's economic history has long been dominated by agriculture, with agricultural production never being eclipsed by manufacturing or services until the onset of suburbanization in the 1950s. In 1797, through an act of the Connecticut General Assembly, the Congregational Church was established, governed by the "Columbia Company," earning the territory the name Columbia Parish until its incorporation as a municipality in 1827. The name Prospect was chosen because of the view from the town green, which before the growth of the trees, one could observe Long Island Sound, the Connecticut River, and even Long Island on clear days.

It is also believed that the town was where the first parlor matches were made in the United States, with the factory of Ives & Judd producing them. It has been home to a post office from 1830 to 1902, when it was closed and covered by rural delivery by a rural post office until a rural delivery service was reopened in 1962. A telephone line was run through the town in 1898, connecting New Haven and Waterbury, but it was not until 1904 that a telephone was installed in the town, along with electric service.
