Killingly me softly… I find Killingly to be one of the most fascinating towns in Connecticut. I can’t really pinpoint why, exactly, but it has a lot to do with the fact it is, perhaps, the ultimate Swamp Yankee town. It has a hardscrabble “downtown” in Danielson, sure, but it has many undeveloped square miles.
Two land trusts have property here, and there are a bunch of state parks no one has ever heard of. Not that anyone’s heard of anything in Killingly.
