WOODBURY, Conn. (AP) - Several western Connecticut antiques dealers are asking lawmakers and tourism officials to designate their area as the Historic Woodbury Antiques District.
Woodbury, a small town located off Interstate 84 about 50 miles west of Hartford, is home to numerous shops and galleries. Their collectibles, art, furnishings and other antiques draw buyers from throughout New England.
The Woodbury Antiques Dealers Association is asking Connecticut to grant the official designation in hopes that the state will erect signs on I-84 directing people to town.
They say establishing a Connecticut Antique Trail would be similar to its Wine Trail, which connects 19 state vineyards; or the Art Trail, a route between 15 museums and historic sites.
