The smallest city in the state of Connecticut

Derby, Connecticut, is rich in history and natural beauty. With a city center, traditional neighborhood schools, a plethora of historic buildings and abundant natural attractions, Derby is a wonderful place to call home.

While the rivers provided power and transportation that made Derby's location the envy of its neighbors from the earliest times, its geographic location continues to be a favorable asset to this day. Located in the center of a triangle bordered by New Haven on the east, Bridgeport to the south and Waterbury to the north, Derby is the hub of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the state, yet maintains its peaceful suburban charm. Route 8 provides a vital north-south link to major interstate highways 84 and 95. New York is a little more than an hour's drive and Boston is about two hours away. Derby history is always being made!
