DescriptionNear the center of Woodbury a large boulder and a plaque honor Chief Pomperaug who once owned this territory. He was buried in 1650, and the town originally bore his name.
In 1672 the Rev. Zechariah Walker and his congregation left Stratford after a church feud and settled in Woodbury. The group established the First Congregational Church, the oldest in Litchfield County. In the south cemetery stands The Fathers' Monument, a granite slab honoring the church's first three pastors; together they served their congregations for 143 years. The ancestors of two Civil War generals, Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, also are buried at the site.
