BOROUGH OF JEWETT CITY
Jewett City, named after the industrialist Eliezer Jewett, was settled around 1771, when Eliezer constructed the first sawmill and gristmill wheel, harnessing the water power of the Pachaug River. The village then consisted of a few residences, including the log house of the Jewett family.
Until about 1790, the main industry continued to be agriculture, until John Wilson, from Massachusetts, began to operate a “fulling mill” (a mill that produces homemade flannels for clothing).
