History

The Town of Monroe purchased Webb Mountain Park in 1972 from Mr. And Mrs. Alfred E. Wagner.

The park has many unique features from when the Wagner family owned the land. The Wagners built and ran a sawmill on the land for three years. They also owned a Christmas tree farm and planted several varieties of evergreens, such as Balsam, Frasier and Douglas firs, White and Blue Spruce, and Scotch and White Pine. These evergreen plots have overgrown and are now the campsites of Webb Mountain Park (camping permits are available through the Town of Monroe).

In addition to the variety of trees, many other things can be found like the foundation for the Wagner family’s old sawmill, a man-made pond and “goat rock”; the scenic overlook point.
Visitors to the park today can have a magnificent view of the Housatonic River, hike on a series of trails including the Paugussett Blue Dot Trail, and go camping.

In 2004 the town of Monroe purchased 171 acres to be added to Webb Mountain Park.
