Burr Pond State Park is a public recreation area covering 438 acres adjacent to Paugnut State Forest in the town of Torrington, Connecticut. The state park surrounds Burr Pond, an 85-acre, man-made body of water. Burr Pond was created in 1851 when Milo Burr dammed several streams to create a source for power generation. The waterpower was used to operate a tannery and three sawmills.One of Burr’s industrial buildings was used from 1857 to 1861 by Gail Borden as his first commercially successful condensed milk factory. The building burned down in 1877; the remains of its stone foundations can be seen off Burr Mountain Road
Sasso’s Coal Fired Pizza combines artisan pizzas with a rustic industrial atmosphere for a unique dining experience.
Sasso’s Coal Fired Pizza opened in 2016. Named after Matt’s grandfather, Robert Sasso, and his great grandfather, Thomas Sasso. The restaurant shares the love of pizza and family style cooking. Sassos’ was created from our families love and passion for food. We wanted to bring some of these same experiences that we enjoy to you and your family. For us, New Haven coal fired pizza was always a tradition and provided a gathering place for our family. The enticing aromas and ambience that came from these beautiful coal ovens was part of the rich experience, not to mention the unique flavor and signature “char” that set the pizza apart from anywhere else. There is something romantic about coal fired cooking that embodies the idea of family and friends sharing a meal together for an elevated dining experience.
