Incorporated as a town in 1850, and named in honor of Connecticut Governor Thomas Seymour, the area that now encompasses Seymour was once part of the neighboring town of Derby, with the downtown portion of what is now Seymour actually called Humphreyville, named in honor of local resident David Humphrey, who acted as aide-de-camp to George Washington during the Revolutionary War, and who contributed significantly to the economic output of the town by opening a factory which made scythes, tools, as well as wool products from sheep he imported.
In 1836, Humphreyville was incorporated by the Connecticut General Assembly as a borough within the town of Derby. Upon the creation of the town of Seymour in 1850, the borough government was dis-incorporated.
The town is home to the Seymour Pink (a play on words of “see more pink”) non-profit organization that helps fight against breast cancer, with one day per month in the town where all residents wear pink and hold various charity events to raise money for and awareness of breast cancer. As of 2017, in excess of $1 million has been raised for this noble cause.
The town’s motto is “A Nice Place to Visit, A Better Place to Live”.
