On July 15, 1926, the Connecticut Light and Power Companys board of directors approved a plan to create a lake for the purpose of producing electric power, a decision that changed the face of the valley forever.

Plans moved quickly, and the company bought the valley land and built several dams to contain the water. On February 25, 1928, the fill-up began, and in a mere seven months, Candlewood Lake was born. The historic images in Candlewood Lake illustrate the history of the lake basin from its beginnings to the present day.
