Cutrona Electric takes great pleasure in servicing the electrical needs of our neighbors here in our beautiful home state of Connecticut.

One of the amazing towns we have the honor of working in is Newtown.

A few fun facts about Newtown (courtesy of Wikipedia):

Newtown has a number of local landmarks. The Newtown Bee, the local weekly newspaper, has been serving the area since 1877, and has been owned and operated by the Smith family since 1881. Across from the flagpole is Newtown Meeting House, which served as the town's Congregational church for many years. The rooster weather vane (a town symbol), located atop the meeting house, is said to have been used as a target by French soldiers encamped here in 1781 during the Revolutionary War.

Hawley School is a landmark constructed in the 1920s. It has been used as a whole-town school, a high school, and an elementary school. It is currently used as an elementary school. Though it has served many different school functions, its original section has remained much the same. Two additions have been added.

Newtown is the site of the Fairfield Hills State Hospital, an asylum constructed in the 1930s and closed in 1995. The hospital was used as the set of the juvenile facility in the film Sleepers in 1995.
