Terryville history:

The village of Terryville was originally named for Eli Terry, the famous American clock maker born in South Windsor, Conn. on April 13, 1772. He died in the community that bears his name - Terryville, Conn. on Feb. 24, 1852.

Eli was one of the first American clock makers. He made the Pillar Scroll mantel clock and then found a way to mass produce these clocks so that every person on the prairie could finally afford a clock. Eli lived his last years in Terryville and then died there.
