The Southeast section of Waterbury Ct is called the East Mountain Area, aptly named because it lies on the elevated hills that form the boundary between Waterbury Ct and Prospect, Ct. The area is easily recognized by the by an earthen dam, built in the late 1800's, that was once a source of drinking water for the town, but was put into a reserve status when the city's current reservoir system was established in the early 1900's.

Although there are very few of the original homesites still standing, the East Mountain section of Waterbury, Ctis a well designed layout of residences of all types, built from the late 20's through current with the last development having been completed on Westport Drive in the late 1980's. Still the main character of East Mountain remains intact with it's well manicure lawns, and tree lined streets.

The elementary school for the children in East Mountain that services grades K-1 through grade 6 is Wendall Cross School. The school is located on Hamilton Ave right at the bottom of East Mountain.

As with many of the residential areas of Waterbury, recreation areas are considered, and in June of this year, the town reopened East Mountain Park to the formalities of ribbon cutting, a parade, and an afternoon of fun and food for all. The parks offers fun areas for all ages with baseball and soccer fields, tennis and basketball courts; a playground for younger children, and a walking trail for everyone.

 

Adjacent to this park is the East Mountain Golf Course,a municipal course built in 1933, and offering a challenge to golfers of all ages and skills. The course occupies a corner site in East Mountain, with many homes having the course as it's back yard neighbor, or offering landscaped views for many of the residents or passersby. 

Home values in East Mountain are consistent with many of the other sections of town ranging between the mid $120,000s to just under $300,000. Currently there are 17 homes for sale in the East Mountain section of Waterbury, Ct. Quality of life, friendly neighborhoods, recreation, close schools, an ideal family environment is what one will find in East Mountain.

Good job, Ed. I did not know all of the history associated with the area, so that was a nice touch. Seeing my first elementary school (kindergarten and first grade) again was nice - it looks just how I remember it (except for the updated windows).
