Iron foundry


Iron foundry: Operated by Thomas Couch and Ebenezer Burr Sanford (q.v.) in the first half of the 19th Century on Norwalk River at what is now the Moongate (q.v.) property at Route 7 and Florida Hill Road. Said to have been the only foundry between the Hudson River and New Haven. Turned pig iron into tools, including plows, and even manufactured a cannon.
