Nod

NUGGET #52

Nod: Section of Ridgefield just north of Wilton and west of Branchville (also a section of northern Wilton, probably the source of the name); probably Biblical reference to land of Nod, place where Cain went after slaying Abel (Genesis 4:16) — thus may suggest a place not very well thought of, perhaps due to hills, rocky soils or distance from the village of Norwalk. Nod Hill: U.S. Geological Survey maps (1949-1970) name for hill just east of Nod Hill Road, a little north of the Beers family cemetery, reaching 660 feet above sea level.
