In past times the ancient paths in Connecticut were formed by large animals as they moved with the seasons and migrated to salt deposits. The Native Americans followed these same paths as they hunted these animals, traded with other tribes and also made war in troubled times. European colonials found these paths and used them to trade and migrate into the interior of this state and new nation. This foot path, Main Street, was used by local tribes as they traded and hunted, and colonials as they migrated and settled this area.Erected by the National Society Daughters of the American Colonists. Project of the 2000-2003 Administration Mary Ann Groom Hepler, National President Caryl S. Stratton, State Regent
