Reproduction drawing of the community known as Terryville, Connecticut, created and published by George E. Norris in 1894. Terryville, now part of Plymouth, Connecticut, was named after clockmaker Eli Terry Jr. Terry was the son of well-known clockmaker Eli Terry Sr. who had sold his clock manufactory in nearby Wolcott to his assistant Seth Thomas. Terry the younger was also a fine clockmaker, but grew popular when he purchased lock making equipment and created the Eagle Lock Company that would become Terryville's largest employer.
