History[edit]

Former Naugatuck New York, New Haven and Hartford Depot

While little more than a platform next to a pair of tracks, rail service in Naugatuck dates back to the 1840s with the establishment of the Naugatuck Railroad. The Naugatuck was acquired by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, which built a new station house between 1908 and 1910, and opened it in 1911. The former Naugatuck New York, New Haven and Hartford Depot is now the headquarters for the Naugatuck Historical Socitety.

Platform and track configuration[edit]

This station has one low-level side platform to the west of the track long enough for one door of one car to receive and discharge passengers. The Waterbury Branch has one track at this location.
