The Cemeteries of Sharon, Connecticut > Sharon's Street Names
Curated by The Sharon Historical Society

The names of the roads here in Sharon are all uniquely tied to the history of their locations. In this tour we will explore the people connected to four roads: Calkinstown Road, Gay Street, Jewett Hill Road, and Williams Road.

Tour Stop #1- Stephen Calkin (Calkinstown Road)

In the photo above, Board of Trustees member Charles Tomlinson (who lives on Calkinstown Road) shares the story of Stephen Calkin during our 2006 Hillside Cemetery tour. Calkin (1706 -1781) came to Sharon from Lebanon, CT, and was one of the original proprietors of our town.
