Woodbridge History

Woodbridge, formerly known as 'Amity,' was created as an independent parish from parts of Milford and New Haven in 1739. Rev. Benjamin Woodbridge was ordained in the community in 1742 and the town was later named in honor of him. The area was the site of one of the 'Regicides' hideouts in 1661. The ruins of these hideouts can still be found in the area. Thomas Darling, who was a tutor at Yale College, moved to the town in 1774, which was officially incorporated in 1784.
