The town that disappeared

August 1984
Yankee;Aug84, Vol. 48 Issue 8, p62
Colebrook River was a small town in the hilly northwest section of Connecticut, a town you won't find on a map. It was a town of such grace and warmth that its loss lives inside some of its survivors like the bitter memory of an unjust war. Its valley, a distinguishing feature, and its river, gave this town its drama. Not overnight, but slowly over 30 years, the town disappeared. Families sold out one by one until a whole valley was flooded for a reservoir that has never been used.
