The area later to become the good town of Norwalk was first settled by Europeans in 1649 and formally incorporated in 1651, with the town name being derived from the native Algonquin word yank, meaning ‘point of land’.
The area in and around the town saw a series of skirmishes during the Revolutionary War that collectively became known as the Battle of Norwalk, and which led directly to the town being sacked and burned by the British on July 10, 1779.
Norwalk also has the dubious claim to fame of having the very first rail tragedy in the U.S. when in 1853, a passenger train plunged into the Norwalk River, killing 48 people in the process.
Norwalk also gained some name recognition in the annals of literature when reclusive author J.D. Salinger mentioned it in his epochal and (to date) sole published work, The Catcher in the Rye, published in 1951.
Salinger was famously reclusive, and who shunned the glare of publicity and celebrity, preferring to not engage with the wider world and living a quiet life in relative seclusion.
