A Taste of Danbury, Connecticut

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT DANBURY?

  1. Danbury is a city in northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States. It has an estimated population (as of July 1, 2009 ) of 79,743. Danbury is the fourth largest city in Fairfield County and is the seventh largest city in Connecticut.

  2. The city was named for the place of origin of many of the early settlers, Danbury, Essex in England, and has been nicknamed Hat City, because it used to be a center of the hat industry: at one point producing almost 25% of America's hats.

  3. During the second World War, Danbury's prison was one of many sites used for the incarceration of conscientious objectors. One in six inmates in the United States' federal prisons was a conscientious objector, and prisons like Danbury found themselves suddenly filled with large numbers of highly educated men skilled in social activism. Due to the activism of inmates within the prison, and local laborers protesting in solidarity with the conscientious objectors, Danbury became one of the nation's first prisons to desegregate its inmates.

  4. The median income for a household in the city was $53,664, and the median income for a family was $61,899. Males had a median income of $39,016 versus $31,319 for females. The per capita income for the city was $24,500. About 5.9% of families and 8.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 8.7% of those under age 18 and 8.3% of those age 65 or over.
