The Danbury area was then called Pahquioque by its namesake, the Algonquian-speaking Pahquioque Native Americans (they are believed to have been a band of the Paugusset people), who occupied lands along the Still River. Bands were often identified by such geographic designation but they were associated with the larger nation by culture and language).When using our United States tour planner to make an itinerary online, Danbury holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
