Bridgeport / Newtown Turnpike
The forerunner of CT Route 25. Five toll stations were located along this road. Travelers would be stopped by a pole or "pike" across the road attached to a base. Upon paying a few cents toll the attendant would turn the pike allowing the travellers to continue, thus the name "turnpike." This turnpike was a catalyst for Stepney's commercial growth & for moving goods from Bridgeport to Danbury.
