    List of possible sundown towns in CT according to one website which has a copyright by James W. Loewen:

    Beacon Falls

    Bozrah

    Canterbury

    Coventry

    Darien

    Greenwich

    Hartford*

    Kent

    Lake Bieseck

    Lisbon

    Litchfield

    Madison

    Middlefield

    Montville

    Morris

    New Fairfield

    New Hartford

    Old Lyme

    Orange

    Oxford

    Portland

    Seymour

    Sharon

    Simsbury

    Somers

    Southington

    Strafford

    Thomaston

    Thompson

    Unionville

    Westbrook

    Westport

    Willington

    *Not a suspected sundown town but of interest for other reasons.

    Strange thing is that I was going to mention the town I grew up in in CT and then I saw it was on this list already. It was basically all white and black people especially were not really viewed well. Everyone always stared at them if they drove by and most people I knew were quietly racist. There seemed to be some sort of understanding that black people did not have any business in our town, especially at night. It was strange, but I never really thought about it until I was much older.
