On the east side of Rt. 53, before you get to the middle school, is an overgrown road. Made redundant by the “new” road built sometime in the 1920’s, this was part of the original wagon road of Twain’s day; the one he traveled on to his new home that very first day in Redding.
There’s also another abandoned road that bordered his property. It’s just past the junction of 53 and present day 107; near where the road crosses the Saugutuck River in the glen. I was climbing up the south side of Nob Creek brook one day last year and I hit a stretch of woods that seem oddly road like. I checked the old maps and there it was, an old and now overgrow section of the original road to Georgetown.
