Welcome to the Naugatuck River Valley

The Naugatuck River Valley – also known as The Greater Valley, The All-America City Valley, and most commonly referred to as simply The Valley – is comprised of six small cities and towns that run along the lower portion of the Naugatuck River. They include Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton. Located in Western Connecticut along the Route 8 corridor, The Valley is in close proximity to New York City, Boston, and other nearby metropolitan areas, all of which are easily accessible by car, train, since Metro North has station stops in many Valley towns, or plane with Oxford Airport that boasts the state’s second longest runway.
