The History of Ridgefield

by Daniel W. Teller (1878).  Teller's history of Ridgefield is a particularly well-researched and well-written town history about a town with a colorful history to write about.  Written in an era when writing local history was beginning to become popular, this volume served as a model for many town histories in Connecticut and elsewhere.  It is still an authoritative source for history of this community, now much changed from the community Teller writes about.  304+ pages, in PDF format.  Download now for $4.00.
